“Here is a woman who is super smart, energizing, relatable and unbelievably articulate”
So often you don’t get to hear the impact you made. I have been a longtime fan of your work. I’m sure you don’t remember, but I attended a breakout session you led at the Art & Science of Health Promotion conference way back in 2008 (and introduced myself to you afterwards). It was truly one of the most memorable talks I’ve ever attended, and contributed toward my moving into this field! The conference was my introduction to the field, and a chance for me to see if I really wanted to get into it. Prior to your session, I was lukewarm. But, then during your session, I had an “I want to be like her” moment. I thought to myself: here is a woman who is super smart, energizing, relatable and unbelievably articulate. Your talk is what sold me and got me hooked. So, thank you for that!
