This signature awards program, now in its 27th year, turns a spotlight on 40 professionals — all under the age of 40 — who are making a difference in their careers and communities. Timaura will be recognized at the 27th annual ‘40 Under 40’ Awards on Thursday, October 8, at CBJ’s virtual awards celebration. She will also be included in the ‘40 Under 40’ Special Report of the CBJ, published in October.
