I joined Connect Marquette almost a year ago after living away for four years. When I moved back to the area a lot of the people I knew had relocated for careers, and I really wanted to meet new people that know how special this community is. Through Connect Marquette, I have had the opportunity to meet a slew of different professionals all doing things to better our community, and to me, that was reason enough to stay involved. On top of that, Connect Marquette has also provided me with opportunities to get more involved in the community so I can help keep it amazing.
The biggest thing my membership does for me is that it allows me to meet new people. In my line of business, I meet a lot of people but rarely have the time to get to know their stories. I am fascinated by what people do for work and the great impact it has, and this group provides the environment to learn that.
