What does the committee feel he/she contributes to YPN? (Statement by Team Co-leads)
“Chelsea is a young professional, wife and mother who dedicates many hours to the Marketing Team. She has filled a special role on the team as Liaison to the Entrepreneur Team, which she has taken and run with. Chelsea goes above and beyond including helping design the annual report and volunteering for marketing events. You can sum her commitment up with this frequent statement of her’s, ‘Who joins an organization to just sit on the sidelines and do nothing?’ Keep an eye on this ‘up and comer’ in the Network.”
Why do you feel it is important to be part of the network? I think it’s important to be part of the YP Network because the business community in Bismarck-Mandan is all interconnected. It’s important to build a reputation for yourself and your company within that community. It’s also a great way to learn from your peers, and you never know what kind of opportunities you could encounter through those networking connections.
How do you spend your free time? You can typically find me singing show tunes, drinking coffee, reading or spending time with my family.
Are you involved in other organizations in the community? I’m a member of St. Mary’s Catholic Church and serve on the fundraising committee at BECEP.
