"Mauri Stiff and I worked together as leaders for youth aged girls for about 15 months. During that time, I came to see Mauri as an exemplar of service, selflessness, loyalty, devotion and determination. As busy as she is, she made service to “our girls” a priority by not only engaging with them weekly, but by making special efforts to know them personally as well as incorporating their lives into hers. The degree of service she offers to others, and not simply to those she is assigned or obligated to, demonstrates the devotion and selflessness she embodies. Her determination to succeed, and to help others to do so, is reflected in her ability to coach people to reach their goals and make others feel comfortable in stressful situations. Mauri is a good friend, a great example, and an excellent leader. "
