Oprah Winfrey has described a mentor as someone who allows you to see the hope inside yourself, and that insight is important at every stage of a career.

  • Christina Boggs-Chavira, Engineering Geologist, California Department of Water Resources in the Data Publication, Exchange and Management Section
  • Melisa Caric Lee, President, Compass Rose GIS, and President-Elect, SoCal URISA
