Power Pairs

April 12, 2019 A: Katya inspires me everyday with her commitment to growth both as a person and a leader. She works incredibly hard and has an amazing way of taking feedback, implementing, and making changes at light speed. She’s always reading, listening to podcasts, and asking people who she admires for their advice so that she can grow and do a better job.

Instead of just giving them advice, we wrote up a playbook for starting a chapter, built them a website, and helped them launch.
