Entrepreneur Leadership Series: Lola Strong

As a young woman, Lola dreamed of making a difference in the world. Her progress was completely derailed in 1998 when she was prescribed pain killers, which quickly developed into an all-consuming addiction to heroin. Lola’s downward spiral led to a place where all drug - addicts go - to a series of rehabs, jails, then prisons. In 2008, she was on her way to her fourth prison term, but an empathetic judge gave her the choice to complete two years at Delancey Street rather than serve her five year sentence. The opportunity was life changing. Today, Lola is a cofounder of The Other Side Academy (TOSA), and the managing director of the Denver facility. Most important to Lola is the fulfillment she gains from using her formidable skills and selfless determination to help others change their lives.
