What do you like to do for fun? Hang out with my friends and do a variety of activities - Trivia, go to sporting events, farmer's markets,etc. I like to read when I can get the change. I enjoy working out. I like to do outside activities, but not during the winter.
Why did you join YPN?
I joined for the professional networking, but also to meet other people and professionals around my age in order to make friends when I first moved back to town. I still like coming to meet new people around the community.
What is your favorite YPN event? I have really enjoyed the Hy-Vee food and beer pairing event.
What event would you like to see YPN do? Don't know if I have any suggestions for different events, but maybe social outings like for sporting events or group trips, even for the day?
