Terry: Tell me, what are your goals? You kind of started to allude to them a little bit earlier, but just to give you more of a chance to sort of expand on that.

Wendy: Again, for me, it’s getting an opportunity to be a part of an organization where I can be kind of a member of the senior management team and have the opportunity to really make a difference.  And I think a lot of people say that, but for me, I get a lot of value in knowing that I’m making a contribution.
