Took non-traditional career path despite hurdles for black females in law and business, inspired by strength in family members and unwillingness to settle: Describes seeking out, early in her years on the board, mentors like Percy Sutton and other elders for advice. At Apollo, oversaw shift and expansion of fundraising from primarily independent donor-based to city-backed financing, which has allowed it to grow and expand its outreach under not-for-profit status. Shifted board to include wide range of skilled, talented, connected partners. Emphasis on preserving Apollo's legacy rather than pushing it too far into contemporary acts
