In November 2019, our president was honored to be a speaker at the TEDxRoseTree event in Media PA where PARCA is based. Heather’s talk focused on the importance of raising your hand when the opportunity arises and how that simple gesture can change your life. She also discussed how the work you do isn’t always about the work you do. We hope you enjoy the talk.
