We have a fabulous team at KELL Partners – some may call us geeks, [and we’re ok with that] but we like to call our team members superheroes. This regular series will highlight a KELL team member. This post will focus on one of our Project Managers, Nicole Lapeyrolerie.
What’s your favorite thing about working with nonprofits?
Their missions. Most people working in nonprofits have a big heart, and that’s why they do what they do. There’s definitely a different vibe than the for-profit world.
Do you volunteer with any nonprofits? Why those organizations?
Kell provides us with paid days off for volunteer service, which is really awesome. I’m fairly new, so I’m still trying to figure out what I want to do with that time. In the meantime, I am very involved with my kid’s school organizations. I’m on the board of my daughter’s dance team, and I help out with the choir’s booster club. Giving back to organizations that directly affect my children is huge. It shows my children that those things are important to me and, therefore, it becomes important to them. I think sometimes people are too quick to complain about things without offering to be a part of the solution. So, leading by example, hopefully I’m showing my children that if you don’t like something you can certainly take some action to change it.
