Chicago Gateway Green: Why did you decide to get involved with Gateway Green?
Lisa Winter: I have always been passionate about the environment, recycling, & saving the resources of our precious earth, ever since I was a small child. When I first became aware of CGG, I so admired the organization’s ideals & it was a natural fit for me to become involved. Every aspect of my interaction with CGG has been so top notch ever since the very beginning and I’m honored to serve on the AB for such a great organization.
CGG: What is your favorite thing about Chicago?
LW: I love that the city is filled with sports enthusiasts.. I’m a long distance runner, and while there are many things I love about Chicago, there are hundreds of running clubs & charitable running organizations here. I’ve completed 3 Chicago marathons. So, I find this to be a very important piece of Chicago’s fabric.
CGG: Tell us a random fun fact about yourself.
LW: One of the reasons I think I’m such an extrovert and am such an outgoing person, is because I’m an only child. As a kid, I never had any brothers/sisters to play with, so I had to learn how to make friends very easily at a young age, in order to not get bored.
CGG: What is your favorite movie, book, or band?
LW: I’m currently reading the biography of Steve Jobs and think there’s a lot to be learned from his story.
