Mentoring:  Sherice Simpson, SUNY Upstate

Why I want to be Mentor:

"I am motivated to helping whomever is looking for someone to support and guide them in developing themselves and advancing their career. Additionally, as a recent protege of the mentoring program it is my honor to pay it forward and share my experiences."

Personal Statement:

"My favorite author/poet is Maya Angelo and I live by this quote, "I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did but they will never forget how you made them feel." I have one adult son. I enjoy traveling, cooking and spending time with family and friends. I also enjoy the theater and I am a fashion model for charity organizations."

Philosophy:

"I consider myself a Servant Leader. Always ready to give a listening ear and strive to be empathetic towards others. I feel a a sense of responsibility towards my colleagues and individuals alike. I serve as a volunteer for the Northeast Kidney Foundation giving freely of my time and talent. During my tenure with the Foundation, I have had the opportunity to encourage and empower patients young and old battling with kidney disease."

Commitment to Diversity:

"I have a strong passion for diversity and inclusion and I've had the privilege to be part of several design teams at the RF. Additionally, I was involved with diversity initiatives at previous organizations."
