Face of Parker County Business: Donnie Romine CEO, Weatherford Regional Medical Center


Hobbies: I enjoy cooking, shopping, reading, traveling and spending time with my wonderful family and great friends 

Role model: I do not really have a role model. I have tremendous admiration for people both living and dead. I admire Mother Theresa. I admire people who face adversity and are able to succeed. I admire people with integrity. 

How I know I am successful: I know that I am successful when someone thanks me. I also know I am successful when an opposing party later retains me on another matter.

Favorite book: My favorite book is “To Kill a Mockingbird” by Harper Lee. It is a wonderful story told through the eyes of a child. Atticus Finch is the best lawyer ever.

Favorite movie: My all time favorite movie is also “To Kill a Mockingbird. “I recently saw “Avatar,” and it was pretty spectacular. 

Favorite restaurant: I don’t want to offend any local restaurant owners, so I will select a restaurant in Ft. Worth as my favorite — Del Frisco’s. 

Historic person I’d most want to share a meal with: Ronald Reagan or Jesus 

One person I’d like to meet: Jesus 

Pet peeve: I am irritated by people who have sought my advice but do not follow it. I am also annoyed by unnecessary rudeness.

First car: Red Toyota Corolla 

Car I drive now: 2008 Honda Civic 

Favorite place to get away: I love a beautiful beach, but I also like vibrant cities such as New York City or London. 

Thing I have too many of: My husband, Ben, would say shoes. I say empty hangars.
