In my role with @MSUAlumni, I've had the distinct privilege to intersect with amazing #Spartans. For November, I intend to shine a light on those in the #SpartanFamily who have made my life richer. #Thanksgiving
Day 1: @PackardSusan, co-founder of @HGTV, is a champion of emotional maturity & mindfulness. Friends who can help you pause & evaluate why you are doing things in life are a gift. Here she is in action: #SpartanFamily
Day 2: @equalman is a celebrated expert in digital leadership & one of the best human beings I know. His message is rooted in integrity - our digital reputations are shaped more by our actions in life than clever slogans. Check him out: #SpartanFamily
Day 3: @ShenChefalo is a champion of the easily overlooked & bravely tells her story of growing up in foster care to inspire change in how our culture addresses trauma. My heart explodes every time I talk with her. #SpartanFamily
Day 4: @AaronScheidies is an elite athlete fueled by a desire to continue to reach beyond simple satisfaction. His competitive nature is balanced with that Spartan commitment to help others achieve their dreams. #SpartanFamily
Day 5: @SarahKunst is a force for change in tech. A VC and entrepreneur in her 20's, she uses her success and platforms to challenge funders and founders to take inclusion to a higher level. Like @Forbes, I think she's pretty smart! #SpartanFamily
Day 6: @SteveLRobbins is able to dissect barriers to acceptance & inclusion of diverse persons through relatable & thought inspiring stories. His own journey in this space has come at a cost that he invests into making the world better. #SpartanFamily
Day 7: @WillThePoet is a master wordsmith. He has a unique ability to find the sturdiest pillar to hold onto when navigating hazards and obstacles. His optimism and determination to believe the best in all of us make my heart smile. #SpartanFamily
Day 8: @LaurieKeith is the VP of Social & Emerging Media @AdCouncil. She spends a lot of time cultivating opportunities for social good. Her heart shows in her work & in her personal efforts to make the lives of those around her brighter. #SpartanFamily
Day 9: @JeshuaTLauka has to be a Friday pick. His #FollowFriday ritual speaks to his intentions to be a connector. A rising business attorney by day, his commitment to serving vulnerable populations dominates his social conversations. #SpartanFamily
Day 10: She doesn't use Twitter so I can't link her, but Nancy Haley is must for my list. I could spend hours with Nancy soaking up her creativity, energy and grit. For now, I give you 10 minutes with her. Enjoy. #SpartanFamily
Day 11: Also not on Twitter, Judith Fedder - Lt Gen USAF Retired - is an innovative leader who knows how to engage individuals of all ranks in making something better. I'm sure @DCSpartans agree. #SpartanFamily…
Day 12: @MollyFletcher's successful career as a sports agent earned her the title of the female Jerry McGuire. Now she is on a mission to get people in all professions to think more about relationships than transactions. #SpartanFamily
Day 13: @GTPie founder, Denise Busley, is known for her shop's pies, but I know her for her tireless advocacy for children. She gives her voice, time and money to combating child abuse in all forms. #SpartanFamily
Day 14: @GinaDeLapa is gifted at helping people see what they can control in their current challenges. It's easy to focus on the shortcomings of others, but true empowerment comes from recognizing the role we can play in our success.
Day 15: @Jeff_Epstein hit my radar as the founder of Ambassador - recently acquired by Apollo. He's quick to weigh in on conversations about tech & start-up life. Jeff blew me away when he helped me fund @MSU_SAP's therapy dog, Justice. #SpartanFamily
Day 16: @LisaDietlin effectively pairs pizazz with practicality as she leads those with big dreams and goals to successful outcomes. How can you not appreciate someone who teaches you how doing less can accomplish more? #SpartanFamily
Day 17: @WeisShirley, retired CAO of @MayoClinic, defines leadership through her roots as a nurse. "Stepping in to take on the jobs no one else wanted to handle." "Go to the heart of the problem and solve it." Sounds like a Spartan #SpartanFamily
Day 18: @EricThomasBTC is on a mission to remove excuses and fears from those he hopes to inspire to be more than their current situation. He's not asking anyone to do what he hasn't done himself times 100. #SpartanFamily
Day 19: @KT_PlayerEngage (Kaleb Thornhill) is a former @MSU_Football player to some. To me, he is that disciplined mentor every kid needs to see a concrete path forward. #SpartanFamily #MarcusStrong
Day 20: Rob Smith of @PhluidProject left a lucrative career in Corporate America and put his personal savings on the line to help create a more inclusive world for our non-binary loved ones and friends. #SpartanFamily
Day 21: @TanaeHoward is on her way up in the news business and her reel shows you why. Her authentic approach to her work and her relationships always makes me smile. So fitting to see shoes made it into your reel, Tanae! #SpartanFamily
Day 22: @AllyGleeson uses her visibility as an industry leader to encourage balanced lives between work & family and to inspire others to consider manageable and sustainable ways to tackle what feels overwhelming. #SpartanFamily
Day 23: @TheRealJKirk recently completed a run as George Washington in Chicago's Hamilton. His professional success, alone, is impressive. Paired with a deep love of family and a commitment to speak for the often unheard, he's a joy to know. #SpartanFamily
Day 24: @CHicksOnAir is a talented singer, television host and radio personality. She's got a big personality and an even bigger heart. I've been searching for a video to share featuring her, so her tweet today was well timed. #SpartanFamily
Day 25: @AignerClark, founder of Baby Einstein and cancer survivor, is as authentic as it gets. Her entrepreneurial spirit and tenacity are a powerful combo. #SpartanFamily
Day 26: Students like 'Max' drive my work priorities @MichiganStateU. Finding ways to support their success and, along with our committed alumni clubs, invite fellow @MSUAlumni to do the same adds tremendous meaning to alumni relations. #SpartanFamily
Day 27: @SpartyCantwell is the current Int'l Alumni Board president for @MSUAlumni & former president of @MSUAlumChicago. Here we are making the pitch to support alumni club scholarships on #GiveGreenDay. #SpartanFamily
Day 28: @JFasoneHolder is an incredible advocate for advancing women to leadership roles. When I listen to her, I want to rule the world. #SpartanFamily
Day 29: @RandallTavierne is a globe trotting Spartan working to identify & connect entrepreneurs beyond the established entrepreneur hubs. It's always fun to experience an MSU game w/ Randy online from wherever he is in the world. #SpartanFamily
Day 30: @PaulaMIAARP is dynamic leader with a servant's heart and an endless source of energy to do what she can to make communities better. The energy isn't chaotic. She brings and inspires a sense of calm while working at a rapid pace. #SpartanFamily
