Bailey Lefthand, Marketing and Communications Specialist
Central Electric Cooperative
Bailey and her family are new to Stillwater but she is already making a positive impact on the community. In her position as the Marketing and Communications Specialist with Central Electric Cooperative, she focuses on Central's Strategic Business Units. This includes the limited liability company, ScaleData which offers innovative solutions to scale organization operations. When asked about her best piece of career advice she shad, “Find your tribe. Make and keep connections, then lean on each other.”
Right out of school she was hired as a full-time Marketing & Communications Specialist at the Ogden-Weber Chamber of Commerce, where she had been working part-time for six months. She had the opportunity to play a role in several grassroots initiatives focused on business development in the local community. She helped in the development and implementation of Northern Utah Business (Nubiz.org<http://Nubiz.org>) a source for business news, blogs and events in northern Utah. She also helped organize and plan the Northern Utah Business Symposium where industry leaders discussed their leadership styles in a day-long training.
With Baileys background and experience at a Chamber of Commerce, she wanted to help in any way possible when she arrived in Stillwater. She has been very involved with the Chamber Total Resource Campaign this year. She looks forward to getting involved in additional activities with the chamber and community. “I am loving Stillwater,” she said. “I love the small town feel and quaint potential.”
“I'm honored to be spotlighted and frankly feel out of place,” Bailey said. “I'm grateful for many professionals I look up to and follow after. I'm grateful to be part of Young Professionals to make connections and learn from so many others.”
