More about Becky: In thinking about compiling the following information about myself, it reminded me of how blessed I have been to be able to attend so many educational events. But, more importantly, I want to recognize the extremely educated industry leaders who have developed and shared their insights and knowledge to build our profession and enable all of us to be as successful as we can be. I am deeply grateful to have had the opportunity to work with and be educated by the wonderful people listed below.  All of these teachers gave me information I needed and some of them believed in me and gave me courage. How could I have just listed a course without respectfully acknowledging the people who were my teachers? Knowledge empowers you to reach your full potential!
