Day to Day

They would see a constant juggling of priorities that directly connects with the needs of our customers and associates. They would be inspired to learn how we help out our community through constant education and simple conversations. They would learn how to conduct meetings and inspire and motivate others through beliefs and compassion, teaching them how to connect to the environment that we service and tying it back to the simplest of others needs.

Skills & Qualities Beyond School

The most important skills you can posses is being human with others, understanding that everyone has their own responsibilities and anxieties and what and how you choose to interact with others will dictate the outcome of your day. We all have the ability to put down our ego and let go of our own biases when communicating with others, it is this ability to really understand what is important to others and not just yourself is what makes the difference.

Advice for Getting Started

Here's the first step for college students

The most important component of pursuing any career is first to understand who you are as an individual. What does your brand look like and what do you want to be known for. We all think we know what we want, however, taking a variety of courses and volunteering and attaching yourself to the community will give you a broader prospective on what you can do. Not settling for the obvious and looking for what truly brings you "AAHHH" when you are performing that work, will lead to success.
