WHY Besides killing it at work every day in the Governor’s office and working towards community and business development since she was in college, she is a fun-loving and dedicated mother of two little girls and the supportive wife to an entrepreneur/artist/designer husband. Panorea also happens to be a perfect role model for women between the age of 16 to infinity because she is living proof that a beautiful, brilliant, sexy, determined and motivated young woman can be taken seriously and can achieve massive success. She is an overall badass, inspiration and Sacramentan (she grew up in Rio Linda cattle ranching with her Greek immigrant parents.) I truly believe that campaigns such as yours are meant to highlight women as special as Panorea.
