Gerri Hayes

For businesswoman Gerri Hayes, being told that “you can’t do it” just makes her more determined to succeed. On the next Long Story Short, Gerri shares her survival story as a single mother of two young children who moved to Hawaii to take a human-services job that didn’t materialize. She founded a business, Office Pavilion Hawaii, providing furniture to workplaces. It was hailed by Pacific Business News as 2011’s top female-owned business in the islands, with revenues that year of $37 million.

Long Story Short with Leslie Wilcox is a production of PBS Hawaii.
