Gunderson for usquare

Looking back, what does the Twenty under 40 Award mean to you?
I see this award as a call to action: although it was a huge honor, I know I need to keep living up to it and to my fellow recipients every day.

What have you accomplished in your professional and community efforts since receiving the award?  
I recently became a shareholder in my firm, which has been such an adventure. I also serve a second term as the President of the Crisis Call Center, leading the organization through the tragic passing of its Executive Director and – along with many other dedicated Board members, staff and volunteers – bringing the Center to a much stronger place. And my second child was recently born, so the past few years have been very busy!

Name three compelling characteristics of a Twenty under 40 Recipient:
Vision, determination and a strong sense of community involvement.
