A Decade.

Today marks the completion of my 10th year at Midland Hills. A decade. During my final-round interview, sitting in the board room of the clubhouse 10 years ago, I was a nervous Nellie, with big ideas, trying to sell my skill set. What I told everyone in that room that day was that I wanted […]
