How Do You Make Marshfield a Better Place? Currently serving with Grow Marshfield, an economic development initiative that is funded through a USDA grant. I’m on the steering committee that is studying the creation of a micro financing loan program for new start-ups and entrepreneurs who have ideas that don’t lend themselves to traditional financing. I also teach a monthly Life Skills Class on budgeting and financial awareness.
Bear State Core Value that Resonates the Loudest? Collaboration. Marshfield is at a pivotal place, and we’re collaborating to generate jobs and expand industry through Gro Marshfield. We’re working together as a team and more like a family, bringing nonprofits and businesses to the table with a common goal of creating more opportunities. When you work together, it really opens you up new ideas that can make a difference.
