C4W Member Profile: Lilla Folsom

What is your profession?  Starting in TV,  I moved to marina management then worked as a chef on private yachts. I came back to Charleston to attend Culinary School at Johnson and Wales. I graduated, Hurricane Hugo hit and I got married all within a few months.  Since 1998, I have been selling real estate and writing freelance.

What do you enjoy doing outside of your career?  I an am avid surf photographer and also enjoy the cottage in Nova Scotia that my husband and I have restored.

How long have you been a member of the Center for Women?  Just joined.

What inspired you to become a member?  I like the people and the purpose. I think it’s a good place to meet like-minded professional women.

What kind of impact has the Center for Women had on you?  I can’t wait to find out.

How has living day-to-day as a woman affected you? My mother always taught me that the only shame in life isn’t failure, but not attempting. That advice has lead me on many adventures and I must say I have enjoyed my life.

What kind of message would you like to send out to women who are trying to succeed in today’s economy? Network, get as much knowledge as possible and  work by the golden rule. Also always make time to give back by mentoring someone.

How can people connect with you? I have 2 websites…www.Lilla.Net and www.LillaWrites.com.
