My job opens so many doors for me to give back to my community. In this ever-changing, fast-paced, interconnected world we are living in, it’s more important than ever to recognize the importance of personal connections. It’s about more than business. Yes, getting out into the community gives exposure to your business and allows you to network with prospects and clients. But, more importantly, it helps you understand the needs of your community and the people that live in it. 

My husband and I are active in the United Way and serve as members of the Peaks Development Committee. Through our involvement I have seen the struggles that people in my community go through, and I’ve seen the incredible good that occurs when we come together to give back and take care of one another. There also is so much fun to be had when taking part in community functions. Recently, I was asked to walk in a fashion show that was a benefit to save a local park!  Through this event I was able to meet 30 new people and the amazing thing is that you already have common ground – you are there to support the same cause.
