“I just love the challenge of figuring out the true outcome an organization needs, not just outputs, and then determining the most efficient way to achieve those results through people. We get work done through people collaborating internally and with clients. Building a team and environment to achieve that and seeing the results is extremely satisfying.”Holly Foster
