Vision for ΦΤΣ: I have been a member of Phi Tau Sigma for many years now and I have always been very impressed with the quality of the organization and its members.  Year after year our Society attracts students who are extremely talented and dedicated, individuals who go on to elevate the profile of our profession.  I look forward to supporting Phi Tau Sigma as it continues to evolve, providing opportunities for students to network with professionals, and as it continues to solidify its financial footing, furthering its ability to recognize and reward outstanding achievement in our industry.  I was honored to be nominated to serve on the Board of Directors and if I am elected it will be my great honor to serve, advancing the mission and vision of the organization at the leadership level.
