“There came a time in my career where I gave myself a goal to get more involved with an outside organization. DGP was brought to my attention by a colleague and I am so glad it was. I have been able to network with many professionals in my industry and have been able to experience Pittsburgh as a tourist! It’s easy to sell a city you love with people who share the same passions as you.”
