I’m constantly amazed by the ripple effect Galileo continues to have in my life – I feel like there are lessons I’m still nurturing from my time with Galileo, along with the deeply ingrained ones that are embedded in my work. I’ve yet to have a more thoughtful, skillful and effective professional development support system than what I was provided with at Galileo.”
