Chief Outcome Facilitator | Corporate Learning Leader
"When I found myself sitting in the attic with my feet dangling over rising flood waters rushing into the house in August 2005, I realized that change was upon me. Five days later when I was airlifted out of New Orleans after having survived Hurricane Katrina and placed on a plane going who knows where, I knew I was in the midst of a new chapter. When I arrived at a Red Cross evacuee camp in Eatonton, GA and made the decision to get involved, I felt I could make an impact. When my efforts created successful change, I knew I had found my sweet spot." ~Keisha A Rivers
