Life's Curveballs Create Opportunities
In 2008 I became a cancer survivor. It's been life changing and has given me pause to reflect on all of the blessings I have had in my life - family, friends, the PII team and in my career as an entrepreneur.  I'm humbled that our small WBE company has been able, over a 1/4 century, to serve our valued clients as a WBE success story. The outpouring of support from family & friends, vendors & clients has been amazing.  It’s my honor to be a part of PII's dynamic group of dedicated execs and admin team who work tenaciously to bring the very best to our customers. Our team is amazing. The common thread is our philosophy - you are our most important asset. God bless you and tell all the women you love to mammogram annually - it saves lives. We contribute to the cause.

Valerie R. O’Donnell, CEO

We gain strength, and courage, and confidence by each experience in which we really stop to look fear in the face... we must do that which we think we cannot.—
