IN HER OWN WORDS
“I’ve never been afraid of a challenge. I believe important growth, personal or professional, happens when we are pushed outside our comfort zone or while faced with our biggest challenges. I try to embrace those experiences and look forward to the change it will bring within myself or others. I’ve been very fortunate to have a super supportive team of brilliant coworkers beside me to help me along the way. Every day I try to repay my gratitude by doing the same for them. I love being part of a nurturing work environment in which I can make a positive contribution. ” -Melea Strimple
