• “My emblem is the plumbline, which is a tool plumbers use to find a ‘true’ direction from which to build. Whether participating in a training program, collaboration, meeting, or leadership development activity, I assist participants to find their true direction by bringing honesty, uncompromising candor, playful curiosity, embracement of failure, and always the excitement of exploration.”

    —Marj Plumb, DrPH, MNA
