The past couple of weeks have been exciting. I've been lucky enough to book out of town work in truly beautiful locations offering the opportunity for one adventure after another. From driving around Northern Arizona for a week to networking in Toronto to family time in Michigan to experiencing history in Virginia and Maryland it's [...]
