I’d just like to take a moment to speak about Sabrina Marcus-Taraboletti.
From the first moment I met her, her curiosity and caring reached out to me, and I felt seen. Sabrina has a knack for seeing the best in people and encouraging them to reach for those possibilities.
As founding chair of Southern Comfort Conference, Sabrina took a visit that helped her see possibility and created one of the most powerful & inclusive places for coming together. It was her intuitive leadership, combined with an open mind & heart that let her learn very, very fast, which formed the basis for all the success over the past seventeen years.
Sabrina’s best attribute may be having the guts to try the new, to search for the seeds of success where others have found failure. She sees through people and problems to discover organic solutions which come from the raw materials at hand, and that meet the needs now and for the future. By both connecting with people and understanding what technology can offer, she makes a blending that just, simply works.
As my friend, Sabrina has been ever present and ever concerned, as so many who consider her a friend have found out. She actually engages me, wanting to be transformed by our connection, “For Good,” as they say in one of her favorite shows, Wicked. Sabrina’s theatrical streak runs deep, but her humor keeps her connected to the present, and as stage partners, her greatest gift was her pure and absolute presence in the moment, ready and willing to play it as it lays.
With a unique and distinctive history, Sabrina not only combines the best of many worlds, she also brings those skills & talents to every task she takes on. She becomes that catalyst that blends and combines what initially seems disparate & separate, creating connections that forge bonds between people and the challenges they face.
Sabrina Marcus-Tarboletti is a winner who, if you give her an inch, can take you a mile forward to places you have always wanted to go, subtlety creating transformation that enriches and enlivens all around her.
She is great, that Sabrina Marcus-Tarboletti.
And I’m proud to call her my friend.
