What does the committee feel he/she contributes to YPN? (Statement by Team Co-leads)
“Kara has been a great addition for the Marketing Team. Since day one, she has volunteered to take on tasks for the team and continues to do so. She recently stepped into a larger role as Team Liaison to the Service Team. She designs graphics and coordinates other marketing for that team’s events. Kara is always able to execute her duties well with little instruction. She often exceeds our expectations. We are very grateful to have her on our team and she is a great asset to the whole network.”
Why do you feel it is important to be part of the network? It has always been important to me to be involved in my community, and the network has not only presented me with these opportunities but also chances to socialize with new people. I like that the network has a variety of events so I can get involved in the activities that I enjoy and fit my schedule.
How do you spend your free time? My husband and I often enjoy going to movies, walking and hanging out with friends. I also love watching a good ‘NDSU Bison’ football game and visiting family whenever possible.
Are you involved in other organizations in the community? I am an Associate member of the American Institute of Architects and have been involved with the USGBC North Dakota Chapter for the past four years. I have also volunteered for various Habitat for Humanity projects.
