Why did you apply to be in RFL?  I had never been educated or practiced being a leader, and wanted to learn some best practices.  Also, I have called the RFV my home now for a combined 10 years, and wanted to get to know other emerging leaders in the valley for both professional and social reasons.

Anything you would like to share so far about your RFL experience?  I am getting to know myself better than I ever thought.

What’s the best advice you ever heard?  Don’t dwell on the past, live life for now with an eye towards the future.
