I have developed relationships in sectors of the community that would otherwise have taken years to create. I have an appreciation of how complex the work I am doing in the community is, and I have been given the opportunity to connect and be connected so that human services organizations in Howard County can survive and thrive. It is important to me to take advantage of the opportunity to work within Leadership to keep the programs and activities vibrant and relevant.
While for almost 25 years I have taken pride in being a Howard County resident, it was almost immediately upon entering LHC class of 2009 when I realized the experience would literally change my life. In recognizing that great leaders do not operate in their own strength, it is comforting to have such an amazing treasure chest of tools and resources of countless possibilities. Not to mention, newfound relationships that I will forever cherish.
