July 2017 YP of the Month: Quinn Gudex
Where do you work, what is your current position and what do you like most about it?
I am an IT Infrastructure Engineer at Society Insurance, which means that I am part of a team responsible for making sure our employees and customers are able to utilize our data and voice systems in a safe and reliable manner. I get to wear a number of different hats in my role, so no two days are alike. I also enjoy the challenge of encountering and resolving new issues and coming up with solutions to help our employees work more effectively.
What has YPF done for your personal and/or professional development?
YPF is a great resource to connect with other individuals and develop professionally. Being involved in the committees has really helped develop skill sets I wouldn’t necessarily have been able to develop in my day to day responsibilities.
What is your favorite thing to do in the Fond du Lac area?
Especially this time of year, I like attending events outside: Walleye Weekend, the County Fair, Downtown Farmers Market, etc.
Where do you see the Fond du Lac area in five years?
I’m not exactly sure, but I think that is a good thing! It’s exciting to see the changes already taking place around town, such as the downtown initiatives and what we’re starting to see from the Lakeside Park projects. What I do know is that there are a lot of people in Fond du Lac dedicated to continually improving our community, so the sky’s the limit!
What words of wisdom do you have for other young professionals working in Fond du Lac?
Get involved and help make Fond du Lac what you want it to be. Don’t let someone else’s negative perception affect your reality.
