Kudos Korner | Tonya Edvalson

SRA International is a professional networking community of learners. One way to gain knowledge and expertise is to share our stories of successful achievements with our peers and colleagues. Often research managers/administrators are cast in the role of promoting, supporting and applauding others. While this may be gratifying in many respects, it is also healthy to have pride in one’s own accomplishments. Kudos Korner offers SRA International members a wonderful and respectful venue for sharing and “bragging.” Have Something to Share in Kudos Korner? Submit your article here.

Congratulations Tonya in transitioning to your new role during the pandemic. I can only imagine the additional challenge of doing this while working remotely, as if taking a new role isn't already hard enough!
