I could not have made it half way across North America if the company for which I work had not allowed me to go all the way.
I am incredibly grateful to work for a multimedia organization with forward-thinking Human Resources staff and progressive departmental leaders. The corporate approval of my eight-week leave of absence by my superiors and the emotional support from my coworkers were the initial catalysts in making this journey a reality.
South Dakota was for my colleagues.
Thank you again and again.
