How does company culture impact you and what do you do to contribute to it?

Company culture plays a large role in anybody’s day-to-day experience in their workplace. It sets the tone for how we all interact and collaborate. In terms of contributing to company culture, I try to lead by example. My goal is to maintain a positive attitude, demonstrate empathy and show a willingness to learn from others.

What strategies do you use to approach the day?

Approach each day as an opportunity for learning. Be curious and open to new ideas, feedback and experiences that can help expand my skills.

Tell us about your community involvement.

I proudly volunteer with SCORE, a U.S. Small Business Administration resource partner and the nation’s largest network of volunteer expert business mentors. I use my past experiences to offer guidance and support to aspiring and established entrepreneurs alike. I have also taken on the role of the Northeast New York SCORE Chapter’s Marketing and Communications Chair organizing programs to increase outreach, engagement, and awareness within the area.

How can the North Country improve its Gen IQ? (Gen IQ defined as an ability to lead, market to or innovate with multi-generational workplaces and marketplaces)

We should be promoting a culture that values and respects individuals of all ages, encouraging them to share their unique perspectives, as we can often learn something new from people who’ve had experiences that differ from our own. We should also emphasize the importance of mutual respect, empathy and open-mindedness, with the goal of creating a positive and collaborative work environment.
