I am the President and Founder of Sabio Springs, a growing bottled water company located on Pittsburgh’s historic Northside. For 15 years, I have operated this company. Prior to this entrepreneurial venture, my skills were honed in a corporate environment. I would say my most satisfying position was with Ballantine Books in NYC where I learned about project management. I moved from there to BFGoodrich in Ohio and then to American Express Travel in Pittsburgh. At American Express, I rose from putting paper tickets together to managing a regional training team consisting of 22 trainers in 4 states. My last position helped me understand the value of team building and communication. A down-sizing actually catapulted me into Entrepreneurship and the founding of Sabio Springs in 2001.
I am community minded, serving presently on 4 non-profit boards and a total of 9 since 1999. People that know me, know that I am dedicated to my business, feel that mentoring other entrepreneurs is essential and that I have a passion for under-served communities and populations.
Sabio Springs is named after my daughter, Sage, and is Spanish for Wise. Yes, Sabio Springs is a wise choice.
