“While I have been at VCU for 5 years, I've been in my current position as the learning and development manager in HR for only 6 months. VCU has been a place of personal and professional challenge and growth for me that I hope has turned into challenge and growth for others. I have been challenged in my thinking, the way I learn, and to broaden my experiences so I can learn from others. I have grown in my appreciation of other cultures, other paths and my personal desire to listen and learn from the people around me. At VCU I am never bored, never without support, never alone in my desire to develop and I am thankful for that every single day!"
