Phyllis is truly exceptional. She has done a wonderful job in helping me sort through really complicated and timely issues in a way that provides simple, timeless, and thoughtful responses. My conversations with her always feel like a warm blend of experience, empathy, and wit. Helping to really narrow down what is truly happening and what I can do to change today for my future.
