In an interview with Printing Impressions Senior Editor Erik Cagle, Kowa-Morelli shared her secret to success. "As president, I'm still in the early stages of learning, but I'm very open minded and motivated. People here at Huston Patterson have a lot more experience and have been in the industry a lot longer. So I am willing to listen and let people help me, rather than say we need to make changes or do something differently. I work well with people."
