Leading a team of dedicated and driven individuals with a desire to be great, contributes to the overall success of this organization. And this gives me plenty to celebrate.

On a personal note, I’m experiencing great joy in the new parenting journey I’ve embarked on with my husband. Watching our 18-month-old son’s personality develop 
is more rewarding than I could have ever imagined.”
