SeattleU.jpgAfter a week on the road – first a mediation in San Francisco on the E. coli O157:H7 case of Linda Rivera (who has been hospitalized since May of 2009), then a flight to Washington D.C. for a meeting with the Justice Department about the status of prosecuting PCA President Stewart Parnell, then a client press conference about the PCA Salmonella Outbreak of the same year, and finally the opening speech at the GAP Whistleblower Conference – it was good to fly home in time to watch my daughter Sydney’s soccer match, and to see a letter from the President of Seattle University telling me that I have been given the University’s Professional Achievement Award.

Go, Red Hawks!

Honestly, I am not sure if I deserve an Achievement Award or not, or if it is just that being in the profession nearly twenty-four years is enough, but, as someone once said: “80% of success is just showing up.”
