First Impressions

July 30, 2013 by CCF
With its logo proudly displayed on the corner of Huger and Rutledge Avenue, its overflowing parking lot, and modern two-story design, the Foundation’s office certainly leaves an initial impression click for source.  But what happens up the stairs and through the doors of suite 201?  The Foundation’s newest addition, Director of Development Steffanie Dohn, remembers her first impressions and her transition into the Foundation’s family— “I was drawn to CCF because it is a wonderful community resource and effective vehicle for philanthropists to impact everything, from arts to human services, that is necessary for a vibrant community.”
She recalls staff boasting what a “wonderful place” the Foundation is to work.  Now she knows.  Not only has Steffanie seen how “truly happy people are to be working here,” but that “the level of expertise and experience among the staff is exceptional.  I am amazed at how much they get done in a day, all while maintaining an incredible sense of humor and work/life balance.”

What Steffanie does not know, however, is the initial impression she has made on other staff.  “She is motivated, energetic, positive, and a good listener.”  “She fits right in.”  Welcome home, Steffanie!
