From the beginning of our coaching relationship Ansonya was attentive and supportive. Life throws curve balls and it’s important that we seek wisdom and direction from those that can look at things from a different perspective. My sessions with Ansonya were focused. She had very specific areas she wanted to address and she made sure to keep me on task. I’d highly recommend Ansonya as a coach for those that are truly looking for guidance in their personal or professional life. My biggest take away was learning that I don’t have to do everything at once. We all go through seasons and there is purpose in each season.

My life coaching experience with Ansonya has been a blessing, it has helped me navigate through a few big transitions in my life. I have a lot of roles and the weight of being a recently divorced single mom, a fulltime employee at a new job, a non-traditional student, a supportive daughter and friend, not to mention youth group director, chauffeur for my daughter’s activities, and the many other task I juggled on a daily basis became extremely heavy for me.
Ansonya’s coaching was incredibly supportive, kind, and compassionate, yet skillful at helping me dig deep and learn how to focus on me, my goals, dreams and values. She helped me discover how fear, and not dealing with my divorce and staying busy was only covering up the issue, not helping me.
She was ever so mindful of my time, and always there for encouragement and advice. She has creative ideas that helped me reach the ‘Ah ha’ moments for mylife. Submitting, trusting and actually doing the work has helped me to prioritize my life, be healthy for me and put myself first, without all the guilt. Every day, I am becoming the best me I can be. The awesome thing about this is, with Ansonya, it did not feel burdensome. This has been empowering and life changing, and our discussions, and her insightful coaching will forever be in my memory.

When I started with Ansonya, I was clueless about life coaching. Ansonya took a holistic look at my life and then focused in on the area I wanted to improve – professional growth. Each coaching session consistently gave me a fresh perspective to discern the true nature of my life situation and the path to get to where I wanted to be professionally. I am very thankful for the opportunity to grow with Ansonya Burke.

Code Blue. When I decided to go to Code Blue I didn’t think I had a Code Blue situation that could or needed to be worked on. I came to Code Blue to hang out with my friends and have a good time. A good time I did have, but I received so much more.
Before coming to Code Blue, I was struggling with a decision. I didn’t want to discuss that decision with anyone out loud. I was afraid I would receive opinions that were personal to the individual that I discussed my options with. I didn’t fully discuss it with my husband either, whom I know believes and supports me more than anyone else, because I didn’t want him to think I was afraid or incapable. I mentioned it to God a number of times, but I wasn’t really open to receive His answer. In my heart, I felt like I knew the decision God wanted me to make, but I was afraid I might hear God say maybe not.
I just said I had a decision to make, but that was not the truth. Code Blue made something clear to me, or should I say reminded me of something. God told me to homeschool four years ago. With every fiber in my body I know that’s what he told me to do. I was obedient and did. I love every minute of it–the good days and the not so good days. However, my son is getting ready to transition into high school. This past year, he has been changing, and discovering who he is. It has been a challenge for me. I have been secretly doubting my abilities.
What did I learn from my Code Blue intervention? First, if I know what the end will be then I must work backwards in order to achieve ‘the end’. God confirmed to me this past weekend that I will graduate my son from high school, and he will go to college. I should not be discouraged. I am more than qualified to make that happen. Right now, we are being stretched so we can both fly straight. Hallelujah! I cannot and will not allow anyone or anything to take me off that path. Second, I must stay in step with God. I have been, and still am, on God’s path, but lately I have been trying to run ahead of God. Out of fear, I have been trying to take control, to do it myself, to force something to be on my own accord. I have been leaning on my own understanding, and not His. After Code Blue, I am now encouraged, confident in what I know God wants me to do, and reminded that I must stay in step with God. Thank you women of God!

The Code Blue Women’s Conference was amazing!
I went in with a focus to work and serve the women at the conference but God ended up working on me. He allowed me to release issues within myself that I didn’t even know I was still dealing with. I met amazing women of inspiration and new friends. We had the BEST praise and worship team as well as very skilled “surgeons”. These women kept it real and delivered a word to us that was so true to the times we live in.
It was truly food for the soul! I can’t wait for the next one!

I enjoyed the call last night>>>[shouting] our GOD!! Elder Pittman and Evangelist Garrett, Thank you for encouraging me – HE knows what I need.
Evangelist Burke, I am grateful that you would extend the opportunity for me to impart into, share with, and [to] pray for you, Code Blue – The Conference, and the surgeons. The past 5/6 weeks have blessed me immensely and I am the greater because of this experience.
I have great expectation and I serve THE GOD – the only one who is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that I can ask or think according to the power that works in me. To HIM be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.
APOSTLE LATONIA MOORE
First, Thank you Lord for allowing me to attend! THANK YOU Evangelist Ansonya Burke for ALL that you did. The details were much appreciated. THANK YOU, surgeons! Thank you for your time, months prior to the conference, at the conference and after. Thank you all for praying, planning, fasting, and for being willing to be used by the Lord. Thank you, Marylou Martinez for inviting me! Thank you staff & volunteers for giving of yourselves and even going without so that others could gain.
I honestly DID go with expectation. Expectation to hear from Him regarding the plans He has for me. And boy is it true that when you seek Him you will find Him!! I received the confirmation, motivation and encouragement I was thirsty for through 3 seperate prayers! And our Father is so good, not to just give us what we ask for but also what we need. He took me out of my comfort zone to use the gifts He placed in me long ago while we were in our small group prayers. He taught me lessons about loving others, giving, obedience, prayer, knowledge in who I am, the list can really go on! He also showed me the power of transparency, thank you Joy.
In addition to this, the location, camp staff, spacious rooms, discounted books, and girlfriend time were all blessings! I feel that this testimony does not give my experience justice, as sometimes God is unexplainable; you just have to EXPERIENCE Him and his goodness to fully comprehend. So, here are some of my favorite God moments that happened:
“Just get started. Get Started. Just Get Started. Have faith for 1 step then you will be given the detail for the next step.” -Connie “Daughter”- MaryLou Martinez “Do you know who your mother is?!” -Mrs. Brenda I am pleased with your worship my daughters – God via Marylou “No more feeling inferiority!”- Marylou “There is so much more in your belly waiting to be let out! Everything that you birth will be perfect. Prosperity. Anointed hands. You will have to get out of your comfort zone. He wants to take you to an uncomfortable place, Trust God.” – Apostle Latonia Moore “Expaaaaaaaaandddd Yoooouurrrr Teeeeerrritoorrrryyy!!” – Apostle Latonia Moore (i took that one for me too!) “Don’t be afraid. Seek His face.”- Kingdom Dance Ministry “More for you!” -Kingdom Dance Ministry “Take you Higher!”- Kingdom Dance Ministry “He is behind you 100% in your business. He will take care of you & your company.” – Star “He will do something BIG in your business…!!” – Mrs. Brenda “God looks at the heart, not the outside.” – Apostle Latonia Moore “My community is safe, because I’M here.” – Apostle Latonia Moore “Ooooohhh, you gon get iiiiiiitt!” – Pastor LaTresa Jester xoxoxo
ANDREA GARZA
I’m just here to serve! Or so I expected at the 2013 Code Blue Women’s Conference. I was honored to help Evangelist Ansonya Burke with the vision God gave her. She and I discussed my aspect of assisting her administratively around Feb-March 2012. I grew so much in this department, because of the “out-of-the-box” things the Lord had her to tell me to do. I’ve done administrative work for years and have done a variety of things but this was different. Anything from meeting minutes, letters, documents, forms, and the conference agenda was styled completely different.
So fast forwarding to the conference. Around February 26th 2013 my husband’s job was possibly not going to allow him to take the leave he had already scheduled to care for our 3 young children while I would be at the conference since I’m a stay-at-home-mom. I called Evangelist Burke and she said, “Girl I don’t receive that at all, you’re coming in Jesus name, it’s just time to pray.” That is exactly what I did, and God like usual made a way.
The conference finally arrived, and I say finally because I was blessed to be a part of the process from its inception. I was so excited to meet the women we had connected with over the phone via teleconference for months; from the conference staff to the conference speakers. Women were traveling from all over the United States to meet…God! Because God is so faithful, and more than 2-3 were gathered in His name…He Sho’ Nuff was in da midst (sorry only Ebonics was appropriate for that part, lol)! Any woman to include yours truly who came with any other expectations, was pleasantly surprised, and liberated if she allowed God to do what He came there to do…set the captives free! Some women were truly expecting a great move of God. Others came to get a break from normal life because their friend or family member begged them to, and if on staff in some capacity others of us just came to “work”.
From the start of the conference on Thursday evening, until the finish I was blessed and liberated! Because I had to work during the conference I did not get a chance to sit in on the “wordshop” sessions, but so many women were blessed and raved about Sister Joy McMillan, Sister Paula Robinson, Sister Angela Pittman, and Pastor Connie Colbert. The general sessions I sat in on, allowed me to be armed with three powerful tools.
1) God used this small powerhouse named Sister Marylou Martinez to speak to me about my worth. This is an area I’ve struggled with since my childhood. I didn’t get the affirmation I needed at times, and I spent many years trying to please critical and insecure people which became fruitless.
2) Next, God used this mega teacher, Pastor La’Tresa Jester to tell me to serve an eviction notice to this stronghold in my life. She told us to tell the enemy regardless of the area of hindrance, “Devil you’re in trouble!” I can still hear her saying that. It is said like a child tattling on another child with pure conviction, and when I think about it I say, “oooooooohhhhhh devil you’re in trouble.”
3) Next, God used this mighty warrior of God, Apostle Moore twice during the conference to remind me of who He was. Our 6:00 am prayer, which I was upset I had to leave to go work, and the last general session. Her ministry reminds me of a buffet, there’s something for everybody. My take-a-way is: knowing my worth+pulling down the stronghold+constantly remembering who God is = FREE INDEAD!!!
Praise and worship was “off da chain” (sorry more Ebonics), and was the time to shake the shackles off and Praise the Almighty for His goodness and mercy. That’s what I did, and was reminded to stop relying on myself, but rely wholeheartedly on God; I don’t have all the answers, but my God does; I’m not perfect, but my God is, and I’m limited, but my God is limitless. Talk about taking the pressure off!!! Thank you Lord for allowing me to be a part of this ministry, thank you to my sister and friend Evangelist Burke for not allowing adversity to stop you, and persevering in your obedience to what God told you to do. God used you through the ministry of this conference to set many women free. I’m so proud of you, and love you always! Thank you Code Blue Ministry Team for working with me, supporting me and I want to especially thank Evangelist Melissa Garrett for your mentorship and friendship. Love you much. Thank you to all the conference speakers who selflessly sacrificed your time to serve all the women by using your “scalpels” to operate on us patients. All of you are truly an example of godly women and I look up to you. The Code Blue Conference was truly a “life-changing” conference that gave me a newfound confidence in God, and that’s priceless!
CHAUNTEL SIMMONS
Where do I begin…GLORY! First, I thank God for Blessing me to be able to attend the Code Blue Conference.
I desired to attend but was undecided for many reasons, to include financially. While I was pondering whether or not I would attend, Evangelist Burke asked me one day, “What do I need to do to get you to the Conference?” I was amazed that she “wanted” me there! I was hoping she wasn’t implying paying my way because I would not agree to that had she suggested such a thing, but said I would speak to my husband, and the rest is history. GLORY!
To think I almost missed this Awesome Move of God! Each of the Women of God/Surgeons that ministered, truly did so, to the Glory & Honor of God, to include Elder Butler, the Praise Team, Musicians, & Dancers…my God! The Anointing & Presence of God was Powerful & Sweet all weekend long! We were ministered to/operated on so many levels it was Phenomenal!
It was a Joy & Privilege to meet & fellowship with, be in the Spiritual ICU with all the Beautiful Sisters present, none of us strangers. You all truly Blessed me! The Camp Buckner Staff was wonderful! Evangelist Burke, all of you Phenomenal Women of God/Surgeons, THANK YOU for availing yourselves to God so completely, freely, willingly, operating with such precision & skill!
You all ministered so mightily & witnessed to many things God has shared with us through our Pastor & directly, deep things of God, as well as common sense, integrity things…your scalpels cut with precision…thank you for sewing us up with the stitches that will melt, not requiring is to go back to have staples removed! You all offered so much, not wanting to miss anything, I’m thankful for being able to purchase the DVD to get it ALL. I received so many delicious nuggets all weekend long, to include Sis. Chauntel sharing & breaking down how, “Your Intensity defines your Intent!” My God & my King! Prior to and during the Conference I kept hearing, “God will do a new thing!” He did just that…a new thing, & He RE-newed things! GLORY TO GOD! I thank God that although not planned, I had the opportunity to serve, Glory to God!
I absolutely love Him, I’m thankful to God, & was Abundantly Blessed by the Code Blue Conference! Thank God, as Pastor Jester shared, we’ve looked at the back of the Book & have seen the end of the story, therefore we can BOLDLY tell the enemy, “Oooooo, YOU’RE GONNA GET ITTTTTTTTT!” HALLELUJAH!! We are the Victors! We are the Overcomers! We are HEALED! THANK YOU JESUS!!!
Love & Blessings to you all!!!

The 2013 Code Blue Women’s Conference was an experience that will never be forgotten. Upon arrival my mind-set was that I was just going to hang out and have a good time with friends, boy was I wrong. The fellowship with my sisters in Christ and the Lord expanded and strengthened my relationship with them. The connection and belonging was so overwhelming. It was confirmed that I came not just in a wheel chair, but crawling on my hands and knees in desperate need of emergency care.
I realized that there was a relationship in my life that needed healing and rebuilding, and I played a role in the shortcoming of that not happening. The women of God at the conference used their wisdom and life experiences to help me develop my understanding and reengage in rebuilding that relationship. I am so glad that I step out of my comfort zone. The Code Blue conference was a life changing experience. Thank you, Ansoyna Burke along with your surgical team for providing the tools for strengthening and healing me.
SOPHIA BORRERO
Blessed! So very blessed from this conference!! Words can not express what this experience has done for me and my family! I am refreshed and feel so encouraged! Thank you for inviting me!
MARIA ELENA MWANGI
I am still in awe with what I experienced at the Code Blue Women’s Conference. It has encouraged me to seek a closer covenant relationship with God. Each of the exam room presentations were right on time with what I needed to hear and apply to my life. The personal testimonies, the early morning prayer with Apostle Moore, and learning to “Elevate your Ask”, were just some of the things that I took away from the surgeons. I am excited about what God has in store for me, and I cannot wait until the next women’s conference! Thank You Ms. Ansonya for your desire, and commitment to share your vision with the women of God.
RESHONDA GONZALES
I am so excited to have been a part of the Code Blue 2013 Women’s Conference! Although we were from different origins, cities & states, it seemed as if we were one big family having a family reunion. Everyone was kind to one another & the love for each other was definitely there! Now, I’m looking forward to next years conference! A big shot out to Ansonya Burke & the entire team that assisted her with putting the conference together! Love you guys…
KAI JAY MACK
The code blue conference was truly a life changing event. I was very reluctant in making that trip but figured I paid my money I might as well get my moneys worth. Little did I know I’d get so much more. God knows what He was doing and knew that I was supposed to be there with all those beautiful women. I can’t wait for the next one and plan on bringing every woman I know. Thank you Evangelist Burke!

My life coaching experience with Ansonya has been a blessing, it has helped me navigate through a few big transitions in my life. I have a lot of roles and the weight of being a recently divorced single mom, a fulltime employee at a new job, a non-traditional student, a supportive daughter and friend, not to mention youth group director, chauffeur for my daughter’s activities, and the many other task I juggled on a daily basis became extremely heavy for me.

She was ever so mindful of my time, and always there for encouragement and advice. She has creative ideas that helped me reach the ‘Ah ha’ moments for mylife. Submitting, trusting and actually doing the work has helped me to prioritize my life, be healthy for me and put myself first, without all the guilt. Every day, I am becoming the best me I can be.

You all ministered so mightily & witnessed to many things God has shared with us through our Pastor & directly, deep things of God, as well as common sense, integrity things…your scalpels cut with precision…thank you for sewing us up with the stitches that will melt, not requiring is to go back to have staples removed! You all offered so much, not wanting to miss anything, I’m thankful for being able to purchase the DVD to get it ALL. I received so many delicious nuggets all weekend long, to include Sis. Chauntel sharing & breaking down how, “Your Intensity defines your Intent!” My God & my King! Prior to and during the Conference I kept hearing, “God will do a new thing!” He did just that…a new thing, & He RE-newed things! GLORY TO GOD! I thank God that although not planned, I had the opportunity to serve, Glory to God!
I absolutely love Him, I’m thankful to God, & was Abundantly Blessed by the Code Blue Conference! Thank God, as Pastor Jester shared, we’ve looked at the back of the Book & have seen the end of the story, therefore we can BOLDLY tell the enemy, “Oooooo, YOU’RE GONNA GET ITTTTTTTTT!” HALLELUJAH!! We are the Victors! We are the Overcomers! We are HEALED! THANK YOU JESUS!!!
Love & Blessings to you all!!!

The 2013 Code Blue Women’s Conference was an experience that will never be forgotten. Upon arrival my mind-set was that I was just going to hang out and have a good time with friends, boy was I wrong.

The fellowship with my sisters in Christ and the Lord expanded and strengthened my relationship with them. The connection and belonging was so overwhelming. It was confirmed that I came not just in a wheel chair, but crawling on my hands and knees in desperate need of emergency care.
I realized that there was a relationship in my life that needed healing and rebuilding, and I played a role in the shortcoming of that not happening. The women of God at the conference used their wisdom and life experiences to help me develop my understanding and reengage in rebuilding that relationship. I am so glad that I step out of my comfort zone. The Code Blue conference was a life changing experience. Thank you, Ansoyna Burke along with your surgical team for providing the tools for strengthening and healing.

I am still in awe with what I experienced at the Code Blue Women’s Conference. It has encouraged me to seek a closer covenant relationship with God. Each of the exam room presentations were right on time with what I needed to hear and apply to my life.

The personal testimonies, the early morning prayer with Apostle Moore, and learning to “Elevate your Ask”, were just some of the things that I took away from the surgeons. I am excited about what God has in store for me, and I cannot wait until the next women’s conference! Thank You Ms. Ansonya for your desire, and commitment to share your vision with the women of God.

The code blue conference was truly a life changing event. I was very reluctant in making that trip but figured I paid my money I might as well get my moneys worth. Little did I know I’d get so much more.

God knows what He was doing and knew that I was supposed to be there with all those beautiful women. I can’t wait for the next one and plan on bringing every woman I know. Thank you Evangelist Burke!

To Those Who are Interested in Ansonya Burke, Upon joining DentaQuest as a supervisor on August 3rd of 2020, I had the pleasure of becoming Ansonya Burke’s team-mate. I immediately found that her leadership skills exceeded the expectations of what it means to be a supervisor.

Read-more

I know in my heart that when the times comes, she could easily step up to become a manager. The foremost quality I identified in Ansonya was her confidence. She always carried herself with the atmosphere of an experienced veteran employee. This is because she is not afraid to be honest, blunt, and to the point. It made working with her efficient and easy to understand. She would speak up the most in any and all meetings. Whenever she felt that her peers were not being heard, she would open the floor directly to them. This made it so that all members of the meeting to feel included. Then she would go so far as to consider new ideas with reason and incorporation. Not very many supervisors are able or willing to lead meetings with vigor. Ansonya would also bring a caring spirit to her team mates. If they were reserved during collaboration, she would seek them out for private conversation on the topic. When I first started as a supervisor with DentaQuest, she was amongst the first to reach out to me and offer her assistance in sharing her expertise. For months she continued to follow up with me to make sure I understood all of our systems and policies. If were not for her, my acclimation to the company would have taken twice as long. At one point, she even coached me and another new supervisor on approaching our VP with a few complications the department was having. She made sure we discussed solutions more than we did problems. When the escalations queue became to a point of soreness for her and her peers, Ansonya took no issue in being amongst the top in answering those calls. She was able to use this fact to inspire other supervisors to pitch in to lighten the workload for the other top performers. I witnessed the positive affect her energy had on her own team of agents. As she filled every second of the day with improving the department, her agents followed her example and would never miss a beat in the contact center. Their attendance was amongst the highest. Her daily coaching reminders were a helpful initiative. This spread to all other teams as she encouraged her fellow supervisors to work on them with her as a project. It helped us maintain quality work in a time of reinvention during the 2020 pandemic. It is my hope that you will provide Ansonya the opportunities for growth that she is seeking. I know that she can be a powerful leader if a company were to allow it. She easily commands respect with her tough work ethic and caring “can do” attitude.

I would personally like to express appreciation for Ms. Ansonya Burke, a Leader, a woman of Substance and Character. Ms. Burke has shown that she is a woman of power and has exhibited a positive influence over the lives of all those that have been privileged enough to be mentored by her.

Read-more

Not a lot of workers can honestly say they look forward to going to work each day, but Ansonya sets an atmosphere of love, friendship and courteousness at work that makes us eager to be there. Ansonya invites a sense of family yet professionalism on the job. She goes the extra mile and always making sure that I am doing ok. She has shown me how to transform my mistakes into skills. I appreciate that so much. Being under Ansonya’s leadership with her frank advise and earnest support I have learnt how to express myself more and apply myself more in my position. Ansonya is not afraid to show her love for God. She took the time to pray for me at a time when I needed it so badly. During the time of the COVID-19 Pandemic Ansonya took the time to inquire on each and everyone of her staff personally to ensure that we were all doing ok. I appreciate you Ansonya for just being you – sometimes it is the simple little things that you do – like fighting for my vacation approval – giving recognition for job well done – giving out Kudos – giving smile reward points that is so well appreciated – taking the time to call me when I am sick. Thank you – You truly are a cut above the rest.

Dear Mrs. Burke, Even though I am sad that you are leaving I am happy in a way that you are going to a better job. I remember when they told me that I was going to be on your team, I was scared because everybody else was talking about how you were a very mean supervisor.When I started on your team I found that you were mean but it was only because you wanted us to be better and succeed.

Read-more

As long as we are doing the best we can you are happy with us and you make sure that we know that. I came to your team knowing my stuff but second guessing myself a lot. You stopped that real quick, because of you I don’t send messages asking for help for things I already know. I am more confident in myself, and that was not easy for me to do.
Not only have you helped me in that way but you are the only supervisor I have ever had that makes me feel that you Genuinely care about us. I recently lost a parent and you were always there for me to talk to. Even when I was not at work you would send me messages asking me how I am doing. Just to make sure that I am OK because of the hard situation that I was going through. That to me means more than anything, to know that you care about us. So even though your journey with our team has ended you have left a very good impression on us, and I wish you the best of luck for the years to come. I will always keep you in my thoughts and prayers. You have already been written down in my book of life as the best supervisor I have ever had in my 39 years of living. Thank you for everything!

Dear Ms. Ansonya, I dislike to hear that you’ll no longer be my supervisor but congrats on the new position. I honestly believe you are the reason why our team is like a family. You some how were able to make everyone feel comfortable enough to come out of our shell.

Its rare that you have a supervisor that loves what they do and when I say love I mean genuinely. I just want to thank you for always going above and beyond, I thank you for your encouragement and I also thank you for challenging us to be the best we can be. I know being a supervisor isn’t easy, it’s a lot of responsibility, but I can honestly say there is not an area in your expertise that I could say you lack in. You are solid and I’ll miss having you as a supervisor. Thank you again for everything. 😊 P.S save a spot for me over there in C&G…

Ugh, can’t believe it’s my last one with Team Burke, I’m going to miss them a lot , time flies so fast and it’s like you know us too well! But At this time Ms. Burke I wanted to THANK YOU individually, always know I really appreciate all you have done for Me.

Can you believe I’m going on 6 years when I became perm , 7 if we count my very first day… 😃 and yet I feel I’ve grown the most these past months/year with you , Prior to being my supervisor, I’d see you in your cubicle, focused looking deep into your monitor, the way you would interact with your team , and even though you didn’t know me, you ALWAYS acknowledged me .. Whether it’d be a Good Morning, offering assistance before you’d leave for the day and of course my favorite words “Hi sweety” .. remember our Spanish greetings “hola “! When we were told we would get a new supervisor, I was so nervous as to “who will it be this time” .. but why? I’ve been through about 5 of them already, right??.. but when I found out it would be you, I felt good. I knew it would be a GOOD change, and I wasn’t wrong, this was no longer my 9-5 job, I wasn’t just another Dentaquest employee, another CSR , I’m now Raquel, bilingual CSR III, I regained my position and was tested and allowed to use my resources to help others. You gave me new tasks, cases and files, I was able to do more! Looking back at my growth and what I have accomplished internally work wise and personally is a lot for me. You have allowed me to be confident, thank you for pushing me, for being so honest, the thought love and believing in me. This year I know I can do a lot more, however If I’m still in this position please know it’s because I’ve learned to LOVE it MORE, to embrace my Customer service skills and assist others to grow as you have allowed me, however if you want to take me along with you, I wouldn’t mind 😉 Please know you are very Appreciated My Supervisor, Mentor and Friend ! & Even though I’m no longer on the TEAM I know I can always count on you and please know I’m here for you and the TEAM too! Thank You again ❤
