Samantha Haynie, Membership Coordinator at the Outer Banks Family YMCA recently completed her Leader certification from the YMCA of the USA. We caught up with her to find out about her time at the Y.
 
How long have you worked for the YMCA of South Hampton Roads?
Since December 2013

What is your favorite part of your job?
Engaging with members.

Which leadership course was your favorite and why?
I enjoyed the “I Hear You: Service with CARE” course. I would love to use this as a tool to teach my frontline workers. I think it had a lot of valuable information that all YMCA staff could reference.

What did receiving your certification do for you personally?
I feel accomplished and ready to keep moving forward in my Y career. I love that the YMCA offers courses such as these. It makes everything come full circle when I am able to take courses and then implement what I learn and/or reaffirm what I know or already do at the YMCA.
 
Please join us in congratulating Samantha on this accomplishment!
