AADOM is something very special. I am constantly looking for ways to collaborate and provide resources to the members to add value. I think it is very evident to most that I am very passionate when I speak about AADOM.
Q: Tell us something about you we could NEVER guess!
A: I am a Boxer- I know, crazy. Most of the time at the AADOM annual meeting, you all see me in heels and done up. I have been boxing for over 20 years and competed back in the day. Now, I box to stay in shape and for a stress release. I still spar with my trainer a couple times a week.
Q: Can you describe the typical AADOM member?
