Emily Morgan
As the founder and CEO of Delegate Solutions, Voorhees resident Morgan has been named the Chamber of Commerce for Greater Philadelphia Small Business Person of the Year. As a mother working full-time herself she wanted the ability to be home with her children, which fueled her desire to start her own business. Morgan focuses her efforts on reshaping the traditional workforce through providing professional, flexible employment and helping other businesses do the same.

Gaurav Sharma
Sharma, a minimally invasive general and bariatric surgeon with Virtua Surgical Group in Moorestown, was named a diplomat of the American Board of Obesity Medicine. During his residency, Sharma witnessed how patients’ lives changed from weight loss and bariatric surgeries, gaining confidence and happiness, something that Sharma wanted to continue.

Michelle Rohan 
Moorestown resident Rohan traveled to the Philippines through the Gift of Life International organization to help children receive treatment for congenital heart defects.

She is the reason Rohan acted as a Rotary team leader, representing the U.S. during this mission.
