Arts & Senior Services Coordinator
City of Marquette
Director - Art on the Rocks
When I moved to Marquette a little over two years ago, I was eager to meet new people and build social and professional connections. I got really excited when I heard about Connect Marquette through a colleague of mine - it was exactly what I was looking for! I'm impressed by the number of volunteer and career development opportunities the organization provides, and the membership reflects a wide range of fields and local employers.
Being a member of Connect Marquette offers me countless opportunities to grow as a human and professional in the city I've been lucky to call home. The professional aspect speaks for itself, but the organization also shines as a way for it members to network, collaborate, and plant the seeds for the future. Our city, being as tight-knit as it is - is full of vibrancy and energy, and I see that growing year after year. That being said, it takes a concerted effort to channel that energy and turn it into something tangible that can leave a lasting mark as we continue to evolve and grow as a community. Connect Marquette is doing that, and that makes me smile.
