‘Fix what you can fix. Let go of what you can't and just move on. Be tenacious with what's important to you and don't let yourself sweat the small stuff. It's very cliche, but that really stuck with me for my life.  I use that as a backbone to my approach to things so that it helps me keep an open mind when I'm talking to people. I don't really dig down. I really open up and listen as much as I can.” -Robyn Dowsey, LEED Fellow
