Although this award was presented to me, I would not have received it without the help of my Legislative Chair, Loraine Diana, and MAPPC’s dynamic and savvy Board: Beth Baldwin, Angela Borger, Susan Delean-Botkin, Sabrina Sepulveda, Marie Tarleton, Michelle Williams, Temeria Wilson.

We are the team that brought FPA to Maryland and will continue to advocate for all advanced practice clinicians in Maryland!
