I've been a part of the group for the last 2 1/2 years and it has made a huge difference in how I see my job, how I feel I fit in there, and has been the first opportunity for me to make real friendships at work. I am so grateful for the organization and the women in it. We had our annual dinner last night and a half-day working retreat today. I feel energized and excited, full of new ideas and encouragement. The chancellor came to our dinner (a big deal!) and the women's head basketball coach gave a really inspirational talk. So cool. I'm serving as President of the group this year, my term officially started last night. I was nervous about taking it on, both because of the work load and I wasn't sure I was ready to lead such a big organization. I have to remember the positive energy from the last 24 hours and know it will all be worth it in the end.
Myself and two of the other officers had a fun photo shoot the other day and these pictures make me smile, laugh and remember not to take myself (or my job) too seriously!
A "W" for Women!!
KUMC Angels (or not)
Brenda, Phd (current VP) and Julie, MD (current Pres) grooming me (current Secretary) to be the new President...
All in a day's work, really. Don't you want my job?
Have a great weekend!
