Could you provide a brief description of your favorite Impact 100 moment, if you have one?
I have many, but the one that was the most powerful for me personally happened in 2018. I had my son in June of 2018, and the Annual Awards Celebration (AAC) was going to be held my first week back from maternity leave. Being a second time mom, I thought I could do both. I thought I could survive the 4th trimester AND plan & execute the AAC. And then everything fell apart. Both my son & I struggled with health problems (and sleep) for those first few months. I could barely get myself out of bed, let alone to a grant finalist walk through or catering tasting. Without asking, my fellow board members picked up my slack, and never made me feel anything by loved. Even though they were all running a mile a minute with their families, and jobs and own Impact duties they helped me pull that thing off. I’ve never in my life felt more taken care of, and it was a fantastic evening.
