Describe one way Rebecca has inspired you.
All the best to you and the journey ahead,
You've shaped my learning in many ways; however, 'evidence-based' decisioning skills comes to mind when I think of your influence. Thank you. It's an indelible imprint.
One of my memories that highlights your exemplary professionalism and quick-thinking skills happened on site at Wells Fargo. You came to our site to promote the MAOL- Wells Fargo cohort. Despite your own difficulties in mobility that day, you quickly shifted to accommodate an abundance of attendees who initially morphed the capacity of the room. There was no time to spare and a limited window to act. You remained calm, positive, and clear headed. You quickly arranged to split the meetings in two and provide an environment that was more suitable and without any obvious anxiety, deliver a powerful message to attendees in two separate gatherings. In short, you're pretty amazing and a lovely person as well.
I wish you only good things in your next endeavors and am so grateful that our paths intersected. Marian Beumer, MAOL Alum, Dec. 2015.
1) Her quiet, strong grace is a role model to me on how to carry myself and present myself to others
2) She gave me wonderful advice that I am still working toward on my journey to becoming an adjunct professor
3) Her work on 2020 Women on Boards - such a worthwhile goal! I'm glad she has shined her light on this topic
I look forward to seeing Rebecca's continued journey and I will continue to be inspired by her. God bless!
I have thought of your leadership on a regular basis since graduating from the MAOL program in 2012. I aspire to be a leader like Rebecca. She is engaging, motivating, inspiring and knowledgable. Rebecca has helped me among many other students to become good leaders. Thank-you Rebecca for all that you have done for me. May your next venture be as fulfilling to you as your leadership guidance has been to me.
