Member Success Stories: Community Impact
As a member of the Junior League of San Francisco for six years, I have had the opportunity to serve on multiple committees, spanning from Enabling Funds to Raphael House to Finance. Although the committees change over time to meet the needs of the League and community, I have always found there are personal and professional benefits.
I have been on the Finance committee the last three years in multiple capacities, including
member, chair and Home Tour assistant treasurer. The committee has been a great mechanism for me to develop and transfer skills back and forth between my professional career and the League.
In my leadership roles on the Finance Committee, I have been able to prepare agendas, lead
meetings, and present budgets. As a Controller for a local tea company, I can utilize all those
skills on a regular basis, while bringing to the committee my experience in communication with external and internal parties and documentation best practices.
Being on the committee for consecutive years, I have been able to work with and develop
friendships with amazing, smart and talented women. I am thankful for all the experiences Junior League has given me!
