What is your nickname?

Lee, Lis, Foz (High school nickname that doesn’t seem to go away. My maiden name is Fazio.)

What did you want to be when you grew up?

A doctor specializing in sports medicine. Growing up I was always “one of the guys.” I enjoyed watching and playing sports more than anything else. I was also very interested in the world of medicine and would spend hours watching surgeries performed on TV with my dad. Once I got to college and began classes, I realized that I didn’t get to deal with injuries hands-on. I made the jump to athletic training, which gave me the opportunity to deal with the injuries and still be in a sports setting. I loved the fact that every day was different and you never knew what you were going to find. Training gave me the opportunity to be around people and use my skills to prevent and solve problems as they occurred.

What is your motto?

Each day is a gift. Make the most of it.

Who is the person that influenced you most?

My mom. They say the greatest influence on a child is the same sex parent. That has definitely been the case for me. I have learned so much from my mom; I don’t even know where to begin. She is the smartest, strongest, most determined, hard working woman I have ever met. I admire her more than words can ever say. She has taught me to never give up, always fight for what I believe in, and that anything is possible if you put your mind to it. I am blessed every day to have the relationship with her that I do. I am a better person because she is in my life and am lucky to work with her everyday, as she is also an Agent with Calcagni.

What is your best quality or greatest strength?

That’s a tough one. I wonder how others would answer that question about me. I think that my best quality or greatest strength is that I am a good listener. I try to always listen without interruption, never give advice unless it’s asked for and never pass judgment on anyone. You can’t possibly know how someone else feels in a given situation because you aren’t in his or her shoes.

Which talent would you most like to have?

Being able to do it all, and do it right.

What is your favorite sports team?

The Boston Red Sox (your 2004 World Champions!) Regardless of your favorite sports team, you can learn a lesson from the Sox 2004 season. If you put your mind to it, you can accomplish anything. The key is believing you can do it and never giving up.
