She recently joined the founding team for the Latin American Business Council, a program out of the Wilmington Chamber of Commerce. 

The new endowment board is responsible for managing about $1.25 billion from proceeds of the sale of New Hanover Regional Medical Center to Novant Health. The sale of the county-owned hospital closed February 1.
