  1. She is an active part of the work community. She greets everyone she sees in the elevator, halls, kitchen… She is very hands on showing appreciation to employees. When we have company meetings… and she isn’t speaking… she is walking around handing the mic to employees with questions. She is always positive and is always smiling. She is just a really good person that is both grateful and thankful for who she is and where she is going. She gives so much to all the employees here. She works hard but goes out of her way to be a part of the work community she created. 100% best CEO by far!

  5. Therese’s strategy for a successful business is and always has been centered on the success of the customers. She believes that a happy and successful client base is the key to building and growing the business. This seems like common sense but very few leaders maintain that commitment as the business grows. Therese will not make compromises that affect customers in a negative way.
