“I am an agent for change who creates order out of chaos by inspiring and motivating others to reach their full potential. I challenge myself and my colleagues to take risks, to embrace unconventional approaches and solutions, and to examine closely actions, thinking and perceptions. I demonstrate my respect for others by being honest and seeking truth. My relationships with family, friends and colleagues are essential to enjoyment of my life and work. My centered relationship with God equips me to do and be my best”
