April 2, 2014•81 min
Few young women are offered the choice between a career in basketball or fashion. thinkThin® founder and CEO Lizanne Falsetto chose fashion and embarked on a successful business chapter that took her to live and work in Japan, Paris, Milan, New York, Australia and Madrid. From both sports and fashion, she gained a deep knowledge and understanding of nutrition and its role in health. From her Italian grandparents, however, she developed a great respect and love for real food – freshly picked from the garden and brought to the table for nourishing conversation and warm family laughter. Besides being a businesswoman and mother of two, Lizanne is a passionate philanthropist dedicated to fighting and creating awareness for diseases like obesity and diabetes. She has also raised over $250,000 for research and education related to cancer and other epidemics. In 2010, Lizanne was awarded the prestigious Leadership Award from The National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO-LA) for outstanding leadership in 2009. She is also a member of the Young Presidents’ Organization (YPO) and a board member of the Arizona Cancer Center. thinkThin® is a proud sponsor of the Dream Foundation whose mission is to enhance the quality of life for individuals and their families who are battling terminal illness.
