Beale Air Force Base -- "When talking about Women's History Month I can't help but think about all the women who have helped me get to where I am. I have never forgotten the women such as my mother who moved to the United States in the 70s and was a housekeeper for over 40 years. She always reminded me she cleaned toilets so I could have a better life. Other lessons I learned from many women who I consider 'Super Women' is to always treat people with respect, dignity and value. They taught me to have balance and courage in all aspects of my life and to remember we are never too old to learn and grow. Some of these experiences are the reason I went into personnel, It's always about the Airmen, because the people matter most to me."
