Joanna Davison, CEO

"Mentors often learn as much from their mentees as the mentees learn from them. I thoroughly enjoyed my time with Megan. She inspired me with her positive attitude, intelligence and determination. I now have a higher level of confidence that the next generation of leaders will include many more successful women."
