“LEI made me realize what power each of us has to make a difference, if only we pick up the torch and run with it. I am proud to live in Alabama, and instead of running from the problems we face I want to stay and work to find solutions for the problems.”
“I credit Leading Edge for showing me my potential as a leader in Alabama and the world. Leading Edge is cultivating future generations of women who will not only serve their state, but lead it into a new era of change.”
