"After I won my election For Congress and became one of the first two native American women ever elected in our country’s history, tribes across the country joined together to acknowledge mine and Sharice Davids‘ swearing-in with a beautiful reception. Stephine Poston and her team planned the entire event, long distance, with a venue change, and a waiting list a mile long. Our event included a traditional drum, a world renowned poet, homemade Indian pies, and Mark Ruffalo! It was an unforgettable event."
"Stephine Poston and her team handled all logistics for our inaugural retreat - with great competence, high attention to detail, professionalism, patience, kindness, zest, and senses of humor. Personally, I so appreciated Steph’s point of view, opinions, camaraderie and thought partnership as we curated the first-ever gathering of our community. Thank you to Steph and her Team for helping us launch the Donors of Color Network!"
