In response to being honored by WIPP, Firestone stated, “There are so many brilliant women in business, it is truly an honor to have had the opportunity to serve in a leadership role within WIPP and to continue to support and advocate on behalf of a vibrant, strong and powerful community, I truly believe there may be roadblocks, but there are no boundaries for women.”
