It was an honor for Nancy to be included in that list and a part of the panel that spoke to more than 100 people in attendance! An outstanding theme throughout the day was “Choose a goal and stick to it.” What a great message and a wonderful event! Thanks to Adisa and everyone for making it such an awesome day.
