David Woolf, VP, InFocus, Portland, OR
No offense to all you other attorneys out there but Cheryl is a rare find in the legal community. She's a good attorney (you know, sort of annoying because she's always talking about risk this and risk that) but more importantly she actually has good business sense! Imagine that? She's also tough enough to make sure we get what's best for InFocus but always remembers relationships are long term...so don't push too hard.
