It felt like more than a business show when Lilly Ho-Pehling, CEO of LHP Consulting, sat down on 1250 WHNZ with Jamie Meloni of That Business Show to converse what they love about Tampa Bay, her passion for community outreach, and managing time between work and a personal life.
“I like the fact that the majority of our community is involved in something and I think that’s very important,” said Ho-Pehling about the positive civic service the citizens of Tampa perform. “Over time I have seen so much development, and I don’t mean just development in housing…the whole community has grown up.” Lilly Ho-Pehling and many others believe that Tampa and its business leaders are advancing in the right direction.
Lilly maintains a healthy involvement in the community, having sat on many boards throughout the Tampa Bay area. “I have a passion for the elderly and children,” she says, “I want to make sure that our children are safe and have quality lifestyle.” Ho-Pehling addressed the difficulties of single parents being able to afford to raise their children on their own.
Jamie Meloni, host of That Business Show asked Lilly how she maintained her lifestyle between work and the volunteering. For someone who has dedicated both professional and personal time to community involvement, Lilly has had to work hard maintain balance. She believes in working hard but she understands the importance in taking time to relax.
Lilly joined the Elevate, Inc. Advisory Board to give back to an organization of young professionals that have accomplished an impressive amount of work in a short amount of time. She is also involved with the Tampa Innovation Alliance, an organization that is working to develop the area of North Tampa surrounding the University of South Florida. The mission is to create businesses in the area and transform the community into one that harbors a healthy place to live permanently or raise a family.
