Meet the​ supervisor

Board President Elizabeth Galpin

Prior to being involved in a cycle of layoffs in 2016, I was in the corporate world for 22 years, working in many different roles ranging from customer service, to training, to internal controls and compliance. All of these different roles developed different skill sets and required different workstyles. The key factor that carried across all of the roles was the importance of effective communication. Is your message being delivered clearly? Does the recipient of the communication have the information needed to move forward with their project? Is the information provided accurate and applicable? When many people talk about communication, they fail to recognize that communication is only effective if it is 2-way. The ability and willingness to listen and hear feedback and ideas from all stakeholders is key to a successful team. In addition to my work with NVSO, I also mentor a student through Big Brothers Big Sisters, an organization which matches students with mentors in the community. Providing the opportunity to help youth have new experiences and learn from each other is as rewarding for the mentor as it is beneficial for the student.
