Video Transcript: Make an Impact – Heidi Bassler
My job as Manager of Professional Development includes overseeing a very small but mighty team. We work to develop the professionals that work here at Impact in a variety of different ways.
I love my job for a variety of different reasons, but one of the things I find most enriching is being the start of everybody’s career at Impact. It’s really exciting to see just bright eyes, bushy tails, eager to learn, eager to grow—that’s my favorite part of the job.
I feel like Impact really has provided me with a lot of moments of pride, just because it was a career change for me. I had been in a different professional setting for over 10 years, so I have personal pride in the fact that I made that change.
But also as part of my job, I have a lot of pride in seeing the growth and development of the colleagues I surround myself with.
I am Heidi Bassler, and I am the Manager of Professional Development at Impact.
