Q&A with Sue Lee
Volunteer & Community Engagement Coordinator, Five Acres
Where are you currently working and how long have you been managing volunteers?
I am currently working at Five Acres Boys and Girls Aid Society in Altadena, CA. I have been managing volunteers since January of this year!
How were you introduced to DOVIA-LA and what do you enjoy about the group?
I was introduced to DOVIA-LA through the previous Volunteer & Community Engagement Coordinator and our CAO, Jennifer Berger. Jennifer really encouraged me to join.
Do you have any tips for volunteer managers?
I think what really works for me is engaging with my volunteers on a personal level rather than just seeing them as someone who will be doing a job.
Do you have any hobbies that help you maintain work/life balance?
I love to hike and fortunately we have a trail right by us that we can walk to after work. I have gathered a few colleagues to go hiking once a week and also a group to jog/walk at the Rose Bowl. Getting outdoors really helps me keep the work/life balance while also connecting with my coworkers.
