Rebecca Meyer, Executive Education:
“One of Rebecca’s great skills that even the most successful people cannot be taught is the mutual respect that she shows others. She is thoughtful and kind but also someone that can be trusted to actively participate in a project and produce quality work.”
“Rebecca constantly volunteers for projects and special activities that enhance our customer experience. She always keeps in mind how changes would impact our vendors, our team and how it would impact the customer experience."
Emily Lambert, Intellectual Capital:
