Hilary and her story are very impressive but I'm guessing one part is incorrect.
Everloop is not why she is a millionaire- It is a Internet startup, with little funding.
I'm speculating her husband, Michael, is the source of their high net worth. He is highly compensated as co president of Mcafee, wholly owned by Intel, ran sales before it was bought by Intel, previously was at EMC through the acquisition of Documentum where he was a pre IPO executive, following early career in sales at Oracle. (His moves from Documentum-EMC-Mcafee-Intel all followed his boss Dave Dewalt.)
Sorry to drag this up but since the story claims she is a "self made" millionaire due to her ceo role at startup everloop, it is fair game.

Having watched the episode of Secret Millionaire that featured DeCesare, I was impressed with the degree to which the writer of this story captured her personality. I could really feel and hear her through Ms. Altman's prose.
I appreciate Caesar filling in the picture (I wondered if she had a husband), but the fact that DeCesare might not actually be a self-made millionaire is not terribly relevant, in my view. She is a woman from means and affluence who chose to leave her comfortable environment and seek those deserving of a break in life. That is what makes for compelling television and an engaging story, which Altman tells well.
