XGN Stargirl VII has been someone that I’ve spent a good amount of time around coming up in DR. She’s always willing to lend a hand to who needs it. There are few like her that I know. Someone who is caring and compassionate about the community and it’s members, as well as being humble about all she’s done for us. I couldn’t think of anyone else to better fit the position of Chief of Staff. She’s a role model to many and for good reason. She’s definitely someone that we can all look up to and hope to be like. Here’s what she had to say regarding her promotion to Chief of Staff.
How long have you been in XGN?
“Since January 2016, so almost 3 years!”
What is the greatest challenge you have overcome in XGN?
“I think the greatest challenge I’ve personally had to overcome is probably disciplining others. If you know me, you know I am probably the most non confrontational person ever, so re educating members or having to discipline members never came easy for me. I don’t like being the “bad guy” or having to do that sort of thing, even though I know it’s needed at times. But I have had great mentors that have helped me get better at that.”
What’s something that motivates you to be the best leader you can be?
“I’d have to say the members. They are why I do what I do. I like to help, always have. So having members to help, motivate, guide not only gives me something to do but it motivates me to keep doing what I’m doing, for them.”
Were you surprised by being promoted?
“Actually yes, I was already promoted to Senior Director not too long ago, so I thought to myself “this is it, I’ve done it all” lol, but I was invited to a party my XGN HELL5FURY 7 & Mr XGN the day after XGN HELL5FURY 7 got promoted to Vice President and they promoted me. I was like oh my, this is surprising!”
What is your next step in XGN after becoming Chief of Staff?
“Probably building a more solid Senior Leadership staff. Right now, we don’t have many Directors or Senior Directors, so working with the other Board members and getting the Divisional leadership ready for the next step is main priority right now. Other than that, ya know, just help build Divisions and do anything that’s needed of me to help make this Community continue to strive.”
