This past Saturday morning, GSNI held our Annual Meeting at Barsema Alumni and Visitors Center on the campus of Northern Illinois University. Members gathered to hear the latest news about the council, vote on incoming Board members, and recognize volunteers who have made a difference in the lives of local Girl Scouts. Dr. Andrea Bastiani Archibald, Developmental Psychologist who works with GSUSA Program and Research, was the featured speaker and spoke about the positive difference Girl Scouting makes in the lives of girls.

As a Customer Service and Retail Sales Representative, I do a bit of everything! I am one of the first staff members people see when arriving at the Elgin Service Center. I help people with whatever they need when they walk through the door, from making a purchase in the Council Store to meeting with members of the Program team about an upcoming event. I'm a people person, so I love working with our volunteers and girls!

 

I love what Girl Scouts stands for.  I tell people I took this job because I needed a job.  I stay because I need THIS job!
