For 2019 our theme year’s theme is Purposeful Collaboration. I’ve tried to be very purposeful about what I take on professionally and say yes to. Collaborating with The Venture Jobs Foundation has happened organically and purposefully. It has been my goal to only take on opportunities that will foster my own professional growth and the growth of 540WMain. As always your continued support of my growth as Executive Director and of 540WMain as an organization means more than I can ever put into words.
