Community is at the heart of a cooperative. And to Cassandra, this fundamental part of our vision is why she chose a career at VEA. In her position, Cassandra aims to inspire employees and member-consumers to be active, engaged, informed, and involved in their Co-op and its vision. Embracing the unique qualities and cultures within each community we serve – coupled with passion and experience – allows Cassandra and her department to identify opportunities for the Cooperative to be a good community partner, improving the quality of life for our member-consumers. During her tenure at Valley Electric, Cassandra has been instrumental in revitalizing the Co-op’s award-winning Ambassador Program, along with enhancing the student internship program, among many other initiatives. Each day, Cassandra wakes up with a servant’s mindset ready to inspire, empower, and build the communities that we call home.
