The YES coaches and mentors are incredibly dedicated people, and their advice has been invaluable. They have had a huge impact both on my career and on my personal life. I still meet my mentor once in a while, even though it’s not still officially in the mentorship program. Steve is so awesome. He guided me through so many things, so many projects over the years.”
