"Also, to my beautiful spouse Frea for all the support you have given me. I truly couldn’t do it without you, thank you,” added Goldston.
Goldston articulated her desire to lead the organization in a direction that promotes growth and success. She was thankful to the individuals who led her to this path, and appreciated their guidance and support.
