Nominator's Comments: "She is a very positive leader who is not afraid to speak up but to make sure her perspective doesn't invalidate others. She holds everyone to a level of achievement because she sees potential in every person and knows that they possess greatness if they choose to put in the effort. She is the the best executive board member I have ever worked with and I know in a crisis, I can lean on her and she will always help to find a solution."
