Program Manager of Little Brothers -Friends of the Elderly, Upper Michigan Office
I joined Connect Marquette because I wanted the opportunity to be able meet professionals in the area with similar interests and passions, such as community focused peers. I am an introvert and it can be difficult for me to meet people both in social and professional settings. When I learned about the organization, I thought it was the perfect way to help me in this area!
My membership gives me a bigger sense of community that I absolutely lacked prior to joining. I work in an elderly based non-profit with only one other employee at our local office, so meeting outside professionals isn’t easy. Having joined Connect Marquette I feel like I am part of a much larger group of professionals and much more connected to the community that I love so much. I have found my place here in the community. This is possible because I joined Connect Marquette.
