August 2016 YP of the Month: Stephanie Gudex
Where do you work, what is your current position and what do you like most about it?
I work at the Fond du Lac Lutheran Home as a social worker. As part of my job I help set up home services for residents after they complete rehab, and I like being able to help our residents return home.
What has YPF done for your personal and/or professional development?
Being from Minnesota I really don’t know a lot of people or businesses in the area so YPF has been a great way to meet people and learn more about the community.
What is your favorite thing to do in the Fond du Lac area?
I really enjoy spending time in Lakeside Park. I like walking through the park, climbing the lighthouse and I’m looking forward to bringing my one year old there to enjoy the rides and petting zoo.
Where do you see the Fond du Lac area in 5 years?
I’m really hoping that in five years we’ve been able to develop the downtown area and have some new and exciting businesses that are thriving.
What words of wisdom do you have for other young professionals working in Fond du Lac?
I think it’s important to continue your education even after you’ve graduated. I recommend taking a class, attending a seminar or webinar whenever you can.
