To Sandra Veszi Einhorn, the role of influential businesswoman is a two-way street. It has to be, as the head of an organization that impacts both her local community and the county at large. It’s a responsibility she embraces as others “look to [me] for leadership and consensus building.”
Success and influence come from “learning from others, building enough self-awareness to know who I am and how to harness that into doing good and wanting to be a good role model for my family,” she says.
Getting to her professional station, Veszi Einhorn has relied on her parents, husband, children, “every boss I have ever had, and the countless friends, mentors and colleagues that I have been lucky enough to learn from over the years.”
Last year was a transformative, “rock star year” for Veszi Einhorn and the organization. They drove housing issues, saw some of her writings cited in news articles, and played a part in a county ordinance being updated.
“This past year, my efforts have brought about change that impacts so many others,” she says, “and that is a great feeling.”
In all, Veszi Einhorn lives life with what she calls her “attitude of gratitude.”
“Whether it’s neighbors calling on me to help them make a change at our local park or being able to raise money and awareness for important causes,” she says, “it is important to me to give back to the community that I have called home for the majority of my life.”
