Where do you work, what is your current position and what do you like most about it?
I work at National Exchange Bank and Trust as an Assistant Supervisor in the Loan Services Department. I find it very rewarding to work for such a reputable financial institution. I enjoy being able to help employees recognize their strengths and motivate them to be the best they can be. I also enjoy processing commercial loans. Each commercial loan is unique and it provides an opportunity to learn something new.
What has YPF done for your personal and/or professional development?
Being a YPF member has given me the opportunity to meet new people and form wonderful friendships as well as business relationships. In addition to the wonderful friendships I have formed, I also enjoy the variety of events that YPF hosts. Each one of these events has helped me grow personally as well as professionally. My favorite event this past year was the Breakfast with Champions event. Having the opportunity to network with the area’s greatest leaders was truly inspiring and had a huge impact on me professionally.
Who or what is your source of professional inspiration?
I find inspiration from watching and learning from other great leaders. I have had the privilege of working with a few great leaders throughout my career. These leaders had a huge impact on my career and helped me realize my passion for leadership. I also find inspiration from reading leadership related books as well as attending leadership seminars/workshops.
What is your favorite thing to do in the Fond du Lac area?
I enjoy attending local events with my husband and son. We enjoy going to Walleye Weekend, the Fond du Lac County Fair, Farmer’s Markets and Fondue Fest to name a few. We also enjoy going to local restaurants as well as the beautiful parks that we have in Fond du Lac.
What words of wisdom do you have for other young professionals working in Fond du Lac?
Get involved. Being part of a group or organization provides you with so many tools that will help you be successful in your career as well as life.
