EEA recognizes outstanding entrepreneurship found within the businesses and innovators in Hampton Roads—noted for their ingenuity, perseverance and positive impact on the community.

"Entrepreneurs tend to have more impact on people than large businesses's more than a job, it's a life," said Dr. Bruce E. Winston, dean of GLE. "It is critical in today's economy that entrepreneurs step out and make a difference."

Having a son with severe food allergies, Dr. Gibney and her husband launched "Dr. Lucy's LLC," a manufacturing business dedicated to creating foods to aid people living with food allergies. Dr. Lucy's LLC produces a specialty line of allergen-free cookies that Dr. Gibney developed.
