When Puerto Rico was dev­as­tated by a hur­ri­cane in 2017, Lehne worked round-the-clock to send fuel via mil­i­tary trans­port planes and ships to help re­store power to the is­land. Her whole­sale fuel mar­keter and dis­trib­u­tor, sun coast Re­sources, has been on the scene of al­most ev­ery ma­jor hur­ri­cane in the last decade with its fleet of over 1,000 trucks. Lehne never went to col­lege and started the com­pany with $2,000 in sav­ings at age 23.
