Meet the new Chapter Administrator: Amanda Jungbluth
1. Where did you grow up?
I grew up in New Glarus, Spring Green and Madison, WI.
2. Why did you choose a career of Administrative Assistant?
When I started working, I found that I had very strong sales and customer service skills. These skills came very naturally to me. I started in consumer sales and quickly moved into business to business sales. To be honest, I enjoyed almost everything about sales except for the selling part! I always felt I had to push people into buying goods and services that they may not want or need and it made me very uncomfortable. So I sat back and re-evaluated my career. I wrote down the pros and cons of what I was already doing and realized that I was especially good at two things. Working with people and working with computers. At that point I more or less fell into an administrative role with a masonry company and loved everything about it. Over time I simply expanded my skill set and made it my mission to be the best in my field.
3. Do you like working for Impact?
I love working for Impact. It gives me the opportunity to work with clients of all types. It is so interesting to learn and grow with my diverse clients. I can tell you one thing, there is NEVER a boring day!
4. What do you love most about your job?
It has allowed me the freedom to be around for my family and not travel long distances to work. It was always a struggle for me to decide between work and family. I had a strong will to succeed but couldn't bear to only see my children for one hour per day that they were still awake. Now, working from home, I have the ability to not only succeed myself but to help my clients succeed as well. At the same time I can be the mom and wife that I always wanted to be.
5. What do you like to do in your spare time?
I love to bake! Since my kids were born I always tried to make the best cakes for their birthdays. In the beginning it was pretty awful. We won't even get into the spider cake that oozed when you cut it up (I have two boys that really enjoyed creepy crawly things for a while). These days "Gourmet" cupcakes are my niche. You can usually find me in the kitchen trying to create a new flavor on the weekends.
It’s Always Hard to Say Good Bye
Although we are very excited for the opportunities ahead, it is with a heavy heart that we must part ways with our administrator of 11 years.
Heather Westgor has served as our Chapter Administrator with consistency,loyalty and enthusiasm for the last 11 years. Many members never saw her, met her or realized what she did for us. She sent out our blast emails, printed our name tags, helped coordinate events, was our chapters "face" when members or the public called, she represented our chapter at national and local events. She was the constant for 11 chapter boards as they learned their new roles, sent us
our reports, helped us find answers to our questions, was the keeper of our chapters information and resources. She never said no, I can't or I won't as long as it was in her power to help she did. She served our chapter with professionalism and a smile. Her service to our chapter, while coming to an end, has been most appreciated.
Thank you for all you've done!
