As I found myself reflecting on this conversation throughout the rest of my day, it dawned on me that I have not thanked those who have helped me along the way in my blog. The purpose of this post is to do just that. I am grateful for the patience and mentoring I received from the following former colleagues - some of whom have become friends of mine.
I believe my career has greatly benefited from knowing each of these individuals. And as Virginia would say, thank you for being you.
