Meet Laura Cullen, Co-Founder and Co-Chair for the NEW JOIN Janesville Young Professionals
Tell us an interesting thing about yourself
This is a tough one! I played Division 1 basketball in college so I am very proud of that but most people get excited when I tell them my husband Jack is a chef and, yes, he likes to cook at home too!
Why did you step up to a leadership position with JOIN Janesville?
We have a lot of talent here in Janesville! I am motivated by the support from Forward Janesville and business sponsors and the interest we have seen thus far from potential members. I think Young Professionals are looking to get more engaged in their work and in the community but some don’t know how to get started. Having a Young Professional organization can help them feel more connected and prepare for the next step in their lives and career.
What’s the most compelling thing you would like to see happen in the first year of JOIN Janesville?
I am excited to meet new people and come together to better our community through volunteer work and professional development.
