Meet the ENF Staff

Lauren Barnes
Donor Services Assistant
 
How long have you worked at the ENF? I'll have my three month anniversary on August 27. How the time flies!

What projects are you/your department working on right now? The Donor Services Team is always working hard for our Elks and donors!

What’s your favorite part of working at the ENF? I love being part of an organization that does so much within Elks communities, but I'm inspired by Sandy Supancic. She has worked here for a very long time, is a long-time Elk who does SO MUCH for her community, and she comes in every day with a smile and a great attitude. And she is a living history of the Order! I have a lot to learn from her, although the whole ENF Team really inspires me and is my favorite part about working here.

Describe your average day at the ENF. I don't really have an average day, but I typically start out my week by sending acknowledgements to our generous donors. The rest of my week consists of processing donations, and helping our Elks with any questions they may have.

What are you looking forward to this year? Everything! Many things at the ENF are still new to me. I'm really excited for the Halloween party, Christmas caroling around the office, K-Kup(our yearly team building event), and Hoop Shoot!

What’s one thing about you that might surprise people? My go-to response is that I have a cat at home that is potty trained to go in the toilet.

If you could meet anyone, dead or alive, who would it be and why? I don't think I can narrow this down to one person, but I can narrow it down to three. George Harrison, because I'm a huge Beatles fan and George is behind many of my favorite Beatles songs. Benjamin Franklin, because I would like to meet one of the Founding Fathers and I think I would enjoy hearing his witty remarks. And last but not least, I didn't have the chance to meet one of my grandparents so I would like to meet my grandfather.
