What is your favorite quote and why?
“Nobody is perfect, but I’m as close as it gets.” I like this because it’s true no one is perfect, but we all have our differences. Don’t leave anyone out–invite others into the group.

Congratulations to Carley, and good luck to you and your team the rest of the way!
