Organizations I've been part of

It's true. Roxy does rock. I had the pleasure of being Roxy's professor, adviser, and informal mentor during her years at EMU. I also had the good sense to hire her as our departmental assistant during the year I served as department chair. To be totally honest, I've had brighter students than Roxy, more thorough students, harder working students, and students with more pure ability. That said, I have never had a student that combined all these qualities in such a dynamic way. Roxy is exceptionally bright, intuitive, and hard working, but most importantly, she has an amazing ability to get things done, not because she does them herself, but because she knows how to find the right person for the right role and to encourage them to do what needs to be done. I saw her do this time and again as an undergraduate, and she continues to do this today in many different capacities. Simply put, she's a born leader. Give her a few years and she just may change the world.

Roxy quickly became an expert in her work as Project Coordinator. In addition, she really epitomized one of the Institute's values, "we are all in this together". Roxy was always willing to help colleagues, no matter how boring or mundane the task, and she also took leadership on projects that interested her that were outside her job scope. She is a great person to have on your team.
