My Inspiration

I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.

Maya Angelou

This quote speaks to how I value not just personal relationships, but also professional ones within the workplace. I believe when we foster a culture of respect, we all benefit.
