Hello. I am Karrie Fritz, the new Executive Director of Cambridge Main Street. I am a graduate of Shenandoah High School, and I have lived in the area for most of my life. Before moving here, I had the opportunity to travel, see new places, and meet new people. I really don't know a stranger.
That is something I look forward to bringing to the office. I can't imagine anything better than making new friends while working to keep Cambridge a place loved by residents and visitors, growing it even bigger and better, and introducing new people to our hometown.
I have many years of experience managing fundraising, non-profit groups, community events, and many wonderful volunteers while working with the Relay for Life, Upward Bounds Parent's Association, American Red Cross, and other groups. My favorite part is always bringing people together by finding common interests and goals and seeing where everyone's specific talents can be used.
I have recently been employed at ODJFS in the unemployment office for the last three years. Prior to that, I worked in the office of Stephen B. Ogle and Associates for seven years. Through these jobs and others, I have had the opportunity to acquire and improve my management, people, organization, communication, and office skills.
I look forward to combining my experience, talents, and passions to represent Cambridge's downtown and surrounding areas.
Stay tuned. Good things are always coming to Main Street.
