My Key MPA Experience

Jennifer Wicks, Key 27 Cohort

“When we started the program, we as a group were asked to develop our cohort’s mission and values. It was a unique experience. I have taken that lesson of the importance of creating an environment of trust, community and respect with me to different offices.” -Jennifer Wicks, Key 27

Kathy Geisler, Key 28 Cohort

“I think I changed my idea of a leader from a perspective of someone who just leads and understands technically how a program should run, to someone who is more embracing of people and who helps people to feel their value. Through that they grow and improve their organization.” -Kathy Geisler, Key 28

Richard Brooks, Key 28 Cohort

“The biggest thing I learned is that it is OK to continue to learn. As a supervisor, manager, leader you’re supposed to have all the answers. Key freed me to continue learning. I know now that it is OK to not have all the answers and that the answer might be from an employee or colleague.”-Richard Brooks, Key 28
