As the Chief Executive Officer of the Community Foundation of Louisville, Susan Barry knows how to lead and when to follow.
"Before a product goes from us to you, it has to have the shock, the wow factor. The first time you eat it, if you don’t make that face, then it doesn’t go on the shelf. It has to be super delicious. And that’s a technical term, ‘super delicious.’”
"Hearing their stories, learning about their struggles, I want to fight for them. They’re my friends, and you know, while they’re a world away, they’re worth fighting for."
"I like my fingerprints on the community. I like that I get to touch a life everyday, and I like the interaction with everyday people. And sometimes, it’s not at a good point in their life, and sometimes it turns out to be a better point once they’ve had interaction with me."
