A Moment of Gratitude

To my friends: A lot of you fall in this category:) Thank you for the memories, laughs, experiences, support, adventures, and never ending fun. Even those of you I have only met once or hardly ever see, I appreciate our relationship and hope we stay connected for years to come.

To my mentors: There are a handful of you who have helped me grow in ways I never thought possible, and I am so grateful to have been under your guidance and leadership.

To my coworkers: Some things only certain people will understand, and the daily interactions and hours we spend together are unforgettable and cherished.

To my students: Thanks for keeping life full of excitement. There is a never a dull moment, and you all have taught me exponentially more than I could teach you.

And to everyone else in my past, present, or future: Thank YOU all for making every day worth living. Your stories and our connection are no accident, and I know the universe brings all the right people together at the right time for the right reason.

❤ ❤ ❤
