If there were a leadership yearbook, what would your yearbook superlative be and why?

Most likely to stand with and fight for Nursing Homes!

What is one of your proudest leadership moments during the past year and why? Feel free to share more than one.

The unification of Local 2015 – the staffing bill in particular – she is a nurse, and sharing her story empowered her to organize/lead others.

Looking ahead to this year, what do you want to be the next step in your development as a leader? How will that step help our movement for economic and racial justice?

To step up in organizing non-union nursing homes.

Anything else you would like to add?

If we teach each other and lean on each other we will succeed.
