The moment for me was stepping into the role of WINGS CEO. In 2011, the founder announced plans to “fly on.” As then #2 person, I was asked to consider the position. Without hesitation, I said “NO.” I was happy making things happen from the sidelines. Frankly, I wasn’t sure I could fill those shoes. As the search for CEO began, I traveled to DC for a panel on SEL. Questions rolled in & I enthusiastically answered each one, selling SEL. Flying home it hit me: I WAS who the org needed. I owed it to our work to put my fear aside & take the leap. 5 years later we're serving 5X as many kids!
