I enjoy participating in United Way of Salt Lake’s Day of Caring annually! I see this event as a chance to give back to the community in a meaningful way.  I spoke to a couple of classrooms at Granite Park Junior High and we talked about my position as a manager of a Business Intelligence department for Zions Bancorporation.  I related how education is important for career opportunities in the banking industry.  The students had incredible questions and were very inquisitive.  It was a wonderful opportunity to share what I do at the bank with the students.

Being a member of WPN (Women’s Philanthropic Network) and volunteering at the career fair, directly correlates with the WPN’s initiative – Women for Educational Achievement.  The career fair provides a forum for students to learn about various careers that they may be unfamiliar with and it emphasizes the importance of completing educational goals.  I shared how I value a good career and the happiness you can experience when you work in a field of your choice, doing what you love. Thanks to United Way of Salt Lake for this wonderful opportunity and for another great Day of Caring!
