Memories / Words of Wisdom

“It was a lot of work and took a lot of time but it was some of the more rewarding years professionally. Working with and leading so many awesome colleagues was the best reward as we built strong long lasting professional friendships. I can only hope that I was able to be as positive in their lives as they have been in mine. I owe so much to this great profession. I would encourage all to take an active role in the direction of our profession. Get Involved...Stay Involved.”
