What is one thing you love about working at Incourage?
Our mission of “a community that works well for all people” is definitely a huge reason I love working at Incourage. How could anyone argue that this mission isn’t something they agree with? This is a lofty vision, but it’s one that makes each and every day of my work have meaning. This organization recognizes that as a community, our most valuable asset is the people who live here. We believe that each person in our place deserves the same access to opportunities, and should be given a seat at the decision making table and resources to reach their full potential. I trust that we will always follow this mission through our values of equity, opportunity, and shared stewardship. I can’t imagine working anywhere else.

What is your favorite place in the community and why?
My favorite place in our community is our lakes and river. I am lucky enough to live near Lake Arrowhead and there is nothing better than taking a quick walk down to the lake and just spending time enjoying the beautiful view. I especially love it in the fall when the leaves are changing and the air is crisp.  It is a good reminder of how lucky I am to call this beautiful place my home.

What is your dream job, if you didn’t work at Incourage?
If I didn’t work at Incourage, my dream job would be to work in floral shop. I have very little talent at all when it comes to arrangements or knowing the different types of flowers, but I sure do love them. I think I would enjoy being able to deliver flowers. Flowers are often shared in important moments of people’s lives like the celebration of birthday or an anniversary, the excitement of a new baby or a retirement, and sometimes the sorrow as we mourn the loss of a loved one. I would love to be able to share in these moments and bring smiles to the faces of those receiving this gift.

What is your favorite quote or riddle?
“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” -Maya Angelou
