I have strategically chosen and assigned each person to their respective roles. It is amazing how everyone collaborates to pull together and elevate each event. We invite you to introduce yourself to the team when you see them at events. We love to personally say “hello” and “thank you” for being part of our community. Thank you team, I love each one of you.– Kelly
