What I love about SMPS Atlanta...

"SMPS has not only provided me with education and career development resources, but career long friendships and a support system.  I have met the most talented individuals through SMPS, colleagues that I can call for advice and support when I’m not quite sure I know how to get something accomplished.  These relationships have allowed me to continue to grow and learn.  I’m thrilled to be able to repay that support through assisting the newest members of SMPS and giving back through committee participation."
