Mentors and how have they assisted you in your career: The first and most important mentor in my life is my grandmotherShe taught me, at a young age, the value of working hard and caring for others.  She also taught me the importance of giving back.  She has inspired me to always strive to do more.

I have also had many professional mentors throughout my career.  They all have shared their experiences and challenged me to be my best.
