On a personal and professional level, community groups are really beneficial.
I was able to meet a lot of people in all of the BSA community, St. Louis, New York, San Francisco, and I made some really great connections, not only on a professional level, but also on a personal level. Those were the first people that I reached out to when I found out I was coming to St. Louis.
I’m also involved with the Christian community, people that share the same beliefs you do. That’s really important!
Professionally, there’s a huge opportunity by joining community groups and getting involved, because you can meet people at all different departments and levels.
