Ms. King is an exceptional professional who contributed to the Missouri Facilities Management Office earning the Region 5 Award for Excellence in 2009, and earned various team member citations and awards from the military. She attributes her success to her faith, to her mother for raising her to want to be the best and for always caring about others, and simply having a desire to make a difference.
