Getting out before she gets sued bigtime. I know too much about this MLM travesty to talk about publicly, lest I get sued by HER.

That’s quite a record - wage theft, abuse and harassment of employees. Add drunkenness around employees to her list.
Then her Board Chair lied to the City Council in service of getting the DTST contract, worth hundreds of thousands of dollars, renewed, after also accusing a respected news reporter of lying in an article about the group.
She should have left years ago, taking him with her.
DTST is the poster child for why the City needs to get serious about monitoring groups it contracts with.

The best news is they’re going with an outside hire for CEO! Glad her son didn’t get to take up the mantle, he’s worse than she is.
