Staff Highlight: Sawyer Knibbe
Meet Sawyer, he's our supervisor for Workforce Development and oversees our programs.
In honor of Financial Literacy Month, he shares his favorite part of his experience at Association House, what inspires his work, and why he believes financial literacy is important.
What is your favorite part of your experience with Association House?
I have worked at Association House for a little over 2 years now and I'm still learning about all the awesome programs/resources/opportunities that this agency has made available to the community. It feels like we are always growing but in an intentional and purposeful way. I've really enjoyed being able to connect our participants to the necessary resources for succeeding at what they want to succeed in.
What about your work inspires you?
I'm inspired by the people who make personal and professional development a priority all while juggling their own life's demands. It means a lot knowing people want to spend their valuable time in our programs all for the sake of bettering themselves and their communities.
Why do you think financial literacy is important?
Improving my own Financial Literacy has allowed me to make smarter, informed decisions in regard to saving and spending money. It's important to learn about what you can do now so that you're in a better position financially 10, 20, or 30 years down the line.
