What inspires you? What sparks your imagination, makes you giggle, and brings you joy? I find inspiration in the majesty of the landscape that surrounds our fair city; in the energy of the streets; in the kindness of others. I find my spark in helping others tell their stories, create lasting friendships, and connect with our community in new and exciting ways. As we count down to opening day, anticipation is thick in the air. My first month as Program Director was a flurry of activity- meetings, shopping trips, decorating, and setting up our activity rooms at our newly remodeled base sites. I finally have a quiet moment to reflect... and I am amazed at what our team has accomplished!
Starting from scratch means exactly that- my first week on the job, I didn't have a computer or a phone in my office, as we had just finished remodeling the space. Getting everything set up and networked was quite an adventure- I couldn't have done it without my program assistant Isabela! She's my go-to tech person, and has already proven herself to be an invaluable member of the New Genesis team. Thanks, Izzi!
I was thrilled by the opportunity to create this program from the ground up, and jumped in with both feet, never looking back. In a few short weeks, we've gone from bare bones to something beautiful. I feel at home here. Artwork graces the walls; music plays softly in the background, and the atmosphere is comfortable and inviting. We're starting to give tours, meet prospective clients and schedule fun activities for the summer. Things are really coming together.
Isabela has been working hard on website design and branding. She designed a fantastic logo that really captures the spirit of New Genesis, and it looks great! I got the chance to help design our brochures and business cards, and they arrived in the mail yesterday. They're beautiful, and I can't wait to start handing them out. It's all happening!
Sparking Inspiration Every Day,
