“This program prepared me for my promotion and gave me the tools I needed for a successful outcome,” says training coordinator for the Maryland Center of Excellence on Problem Gambling.
I was surrounded by some amazing women: Jenny Owens [our coach], Samantha, Eunissa, Kelly, Kira, and May. We met once a month, and I was able to be transparent. From that experience, I was able to grow personally and professionally.
Each month, we were also invited to attend program events with awesome speakers. This program prepared me for my promotion and gave me the tools I needed for a successful outcome. I have learned that it’s OK for me to promote myself, and I can boldly say, “I am remarkable!”
Thank you, UMBrella, for allowing me to be a part of an amazing program.
