Scholar Work

Participants are selected after a rigorous application and interview process. This year they have studied with a variety of nationally-known and distinguished professionals, educators, and experts in leadership development, such as the eighth United States Secretary of Veterans Affairs Robert McDonald, retired United States Air Force General Alfred Flowers, Bush Institute Senior Fellow Dr. Deborah Birx, retired General Peter Pace the 16th Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and Alex Gorsky the former chairman and CEO of Johnson and Johnson.

Her peers have called her a driven, visionary servant leader with an uncanny way of uniting a room toward a common cause. Her infectious enthusiasm moves organizations forward.
