Big break: Being hired by the USOC to be the first director of a new Olympic training center. “I managed 45 employees, a 152-acre facility and thousands of athletes. I’d never managed a facility or a large staff before. It was definitely OJT [on-the-job training].”

Best qualities: “Creativity and tenacity”

Greatest inspiration: Her parents, Fannie and Rodger Fitzgerald
