Thanks Elizabeth!

Elizabeth,
Thank you so much for calling me and asking if I would be interested in attending Go-Run!

This past weekend, I was fortunate enough to spend the weekend with Liz and Heather and 100+ other women and listen to so many people talking about making positive changes in our society. From elected officials to campaign managers to people who started their own organizations they all very neatly stated what got them going and how they were able to do it. We heard the struggles they had to face and how they overcame each one. I was amazed with Ann Bancroft and will be watching for her next trip in a few years! Someone that I have admired for quite sometime is former Senator Becky Lourey. Ever since Liz told me about her adopting children with disabilities, I knew that I would like to meet her some day. I was fortunate to be able to do so this past weekend. The amount of people I was able to talk to, learn from and be inspired by was amazing.

Thanks again for the amazing weekend!
