The work we do at SAGE impacts the community in a number of ways. First it provides economic growth for members of the community through jobs and technical information; and secondly, it helps to create an environment for success by offering services that assist businesses with improving their operation and façade.

The most rewarding factor of the role I play at SAGE is ensuring that the organization is managed fiscally sound.

Making sure that the staff is paid on time, that vendors are paid within the agreed upon time, as well as proper grant management are contributors to my most rewarding factor.

A success story that I can share about a service that SAGE provided to the community since joining the team is the Community Engagement Workshops. This was when we provided instruction to neighborhood association on proper organizational operation. Then to have them tell you how much it meant to them to be provided with such helpful information.
