Earlier this month, I was awarded Volunteer of the Year from the Indiana Chamber. In the midst of all the world’s craziness, this award is such an honor and it is incredibly humbling to be recognized in this way.
I have always been passionate about giving back to the community I live and work in. After my daughter Madelynn passed in 2001 following her second open heart surgery, I helped the American Heart Association raise over $750,000 to create an endowment that funds research for congenital heart defects. I felt the need to fuel research that could help others.
As I progressed in the business world, I engaged with many influential women and organizations that helped others make connections and support great causes. One of the organizations that has always given back to the community is the Indiana Chamber. I am on the new membership ambassador committee which is highly involved with engagement and retention. I take pride in working with others to bring them into the fold of this amazing organization.
I want to help people in any way that I can, donating money, forging connections and helping people keep their employees safe. In recent remarks, I shared with the Indiana Chamber, I like to help companies renovate or relocate, and I will do everything from A to Z — be their advocate, their designer, their furniture advisor, and their procurement expert. I’m here to help support organizations by reimagining their workspaces in a way that’s productive and engaging, and am here to help my community thrive.
Thank you to my Relocation Strategies team, family, colleagues and mentors who have supported me in all my efforts. I am overwhelmed with blessings and wish you all the same! Have a healthy and safe Thanksgiving.
