  2. Almitra and I were members of the same software group at EMC. She joined our team as a relatively junior software engineer among many seasoned professionals. Almitra quickly came up to speed within our area of focus and became a productive member of the team. She willingly jumped in and took on any task assigned and delivered results. It has been my pleasure to watch here career grow over the last decade. I wish her nothing but success.
