This week, Marilyn speaks to Lisa Marie Citron, an ambassador for the American Heart Association, and Sydney Grims, Director of Development for Fearless Restaurants.
In honor of February being American Heart Month, Marilyn was honored to speak with Lisa Marie Citron, a heart attack survivor and AMA ambassador. Lisa survived an unexpected and life-threatening heart attack at the age of 44. Her goal is to help other people recognize the warning signs and take control of their heart health. More than 800,000 people in the U.S. die from heart disease, stroke and other cardiovascular diseases each year, and the purpose of American Heart Month is to empower individuals to reduce risk behaviors, focus on health and well-being, and combat heart disease and stroke.
Marilyn’s next guest, Sydney Grims, is Director of Development for Fearless Restaurants. She is the fourth generation in her family in the restaurant business, and the second to oversee Fearless Restuarants. Fearless owns the White Dog Cafe, the Moshulu, Autograph, and the newest addition, Louie-Louie, which is set to open this spring in University City. Fearless has been a leader in the farm-to-table movement, and has not only sustained such restaurants as the White Dog Cafe, but actually expanded to multiple locations.
