An excerpt from her nomination form said: 

“Flor has gone above and beyond in a few recent events where she took the lead. Flor took care of the recent employee appreciation breakfast without a hitch and the food was fantastic. Flor's tasty baked goods and the foods she helps prepare are always top notch. That same day she put together a beautiful lunch for the Foundation Board. On a day to day basis, Flor handles herself very professionally and is dedicated to her team. This is evidenced by the extra effort required to plan and prep these events.”
