EPIC: When did you first attend the EPIC Toledo Summit?
Melissa Freeman (MF): 2012 - This will be my 5th Summit and I could not be more excited.
EPIC: What was the biggest take away from that event?
MF: My biggest take away from my first Summit was no matter your age you can make anything happen and be successful in your career with the resources this city/region offers. You are in charge of your future and if you want to get something done or further your career you have all you need right here in Toledo. I remember leaving the Summit feeling so excited that Toledo had a group that was so willing to help me grow in my career and as a citizen of Toledo. I immediately dug right in to EPIC and got really involved. I also learned that the support and involvement of Toledo’s senior leaders is not something you will find in any other city.
