We asked some of the most inspiring folks in the community to tell us where they want to be professionally by the end of their careers.

George A. Hatcher III | Government & Strategy Leader

My goal is to be elected to the US Congress. The American political system is broken and is failing to serve the people of our country. There is a cataclysmic shift happening right before our eyes, but amidst the chaos, it is hard to see. I want to be a part of the next generation of elected leaders who works to repair and rebuild a better, more effective system. I know this is possible because unlike what you hear in the news, in my conversations with friends, family, and colleagues from all sides of the aisle, I find that we are not that far apart on the issues. Whether it be the economy, health care, foreign policy, or the environment, when we take away the party labels and charged emotions, we can find common ground based on what matters most in our day-to-day lives. Sure, we have our differences, but they aren’t as big as we think. We need to return to a place of civility. Read more>>

Corbett Kesler | Artist & Special Needs Teacher

The end goal for myself is to be a full time artist that gives back to my community by supporting various special needs populations. Currently I am a special needs teacher and a part time artist, I would like to reverse the two roles. I have been teaching special needs for the last 10 years and I just don’t think I could ever give that up entirely. These kids will always hold a special place in my heart. By the end of my career I would like to be creating larger pieces that really stretch my limits and to push me to a higher level. I am currently constricted by time and a work life balance. I envision a time where I can walk into the studio and create all day long and then not have to work during “off times” and weekends. Read more>>

Brittany Joseph | Author

Our end goal is to get Anxious Little Pishy into as many childrens hands as possible. Whether it’s us doing it ourselves, or parents, friends, teachers, etc purchasing it for children in their lives. The importance of kids knowing they’re not alone in their anxiety and ultimately learning how to cope with it at a young age is what propels us to keep moving. We want to help young kids to cope with and even avoid having anxiety as adults, and this book is one way we can help. I know so many adults who say they wish they had this book when they were younger, so that is an inspiration to keep chugging along as well. Read more>>
