“I was invited to an IFSEA Detroit Branch meeting. I wasn't going to go but agreed to attend the meeting where I was warmly welcomed and introduced to almost all in attendance! Everyone handed me their business card and said, "If you need help with anything, just call." With their help and the help of my new assistant and a few of the existing unit managers, a new restaurant and menu was born.”

“You never know who you will meet in life, how they can help you, how you can help them, and how it will all play out. I owe it to Ed and IFSEA for allowing me to learn and the initial introductions to all the possibilities."

“This organization has done so much for me, I feel I can’t do enough to show my appreciation. My hope is I can help at least one person gain the confidence, leadership skills, professional connections and certifications, like Dr. J and IFSEA have done for me.”
