Professional colleagues and friends

With the prolific use of social media services such as LinkedIn and Facebook, it has become easy to identify an individuals friends, colleagues, and acquaintances. I believe it is possible to judge an individual by  his or her profession friends and colleagues - I am VERY proud of my network of colleagues and friends from around the country.   Below is a sampling of my wonderful network.............
