Living our values

“A guiding light for me is to set the right example for my daughters.  I’ve been in a setting where I would have benefited by following a process that unjustly impacted others.  I chose to walk away from the opportunity as it was more important to treat people fairly.  As my daughters get older and face difficult choices, I plan to reference this real-life experience, which is why “choosing right over easy” is so meaningful to me.”
