John F. Kennedy once said “We must find time to stop and thank the people who make a difference in our lives.” There are so many incredible people that impacted my life, so I want to take a moment to acknowledge the ones who made it possible for me to attain my latest achievement. I truly believe that without any one of these people, I would not have been able to say that I am a proud alumni of the Beedie School of Business at Simon Fraser University, ready to start my new “big girl job” (that’s what my current co-workers call it haha) at Vancouver Coastal Health.
So here it goes. Thank you to…
