Mishy has an extraordinary ability to understand a group's priorities and to summarize complex discussions in a way that leads to a decision and the next level of collaborative effort.  She is one of the most skillful members of any decision-making group I've ever encountered.

As a peace-builder and founder of an international youth leadership organization, it has been a pleasure working with Mishy in a variety of contexts. It is no exaggeration to say that she is one of the clearest thinkers I have met.  She can quickly assess the needs of any group, communicate them brilliantly, and design approaches to serving diverse constituents.
