January 2017 YP of the Month: Larissa Clinard
Where do you work, what is your current position and what do you like most about it?
I am the Fleet Manager at J.F. Ahern Company. In my role, I get to work with a wide variety of people and situations. No two days are alike and it is the opportunity to tackle and solve challenges to support and grow the organization that makes the position so rewarding.
What has YPF done for your personal and/or professional development?
YPF has allowed me to connect with and learn from many other young professionals in our community that I might not have otherwise had the opportunity to interact with.
What are some of the professional and volunteer groups you participate in?
- Vice Chair, Wisconsin Chapter of National Association of Fleet Administrators
- YPF – Membership Committee
- WI Fleet Manager Association (FMA)
What is your favorite thing to do in the Fond du Lac area?
We are so fortunate to have an abundance of outdoor activities at our fingertips here in the Fond du Lac area. I enjoy playing volleyball, softball, and biking. In the summer we also squeeze in time in the garden and camping.
What words of wisdom do you have for other young professionals working in Fond du Lac?
Be in charge of your own future. If you spend too much time sitting back waiting for someone to notice the good things you’re doing, you’ll miss opportunities. Don’t ask for too much permission – go make a difference right now!
