The passion I have for this profession and sharing that passion with other Administrative Professionals has been the driving force that made me who I am today.  With the encouragement and empowerment from my principal who I support, my Cisco family, and my Administrative peers in Silicon Valley, I have gained the confidence and courage to boldly reach beyond all I imagined possible for myself.  Thank you to Sunny, Colleen, and the Admin Awards of Silicon Valley for bringing this profession and what it stands for to a new level. This has been an amazing experience that I will never forget and one I believe will drive the next fantastic chapter of my life! I was very honored and appreciated all the praises from my bosses-peers-EA organization. It is the highest award I could receive, it acknowledges the presence of great and I am thankful to everyone.
