Harris was selected for her career accomplishments, community involvement, leadership and sustained commitment to mentoring. She was recognized for her work with American Medical Response.
“Our Women of Excellence honorees share an amazing talent for balancing the many facets of their lives while also serving as outstanding leaders,” said Suzanne Fischer-Huettner, publisher of Rochester Business Journal.
Six additional women will be inducted into the Circle of Excellence for their long-standing, notable success in the community and leading the way for other women.
“I am honored to be recognized for this award, and to be a part of this amazing group of women,” Harris said. “My work at AMR and the Monroe County Legislature afford me the opportunity to give back to our community.”
