  • A flexible and collaborative teammate, eager to think broadly while overseeing day-to-day operations.
  • An empathetic administrator who fosters a sense of grace under pressure and takes pride in being a steward of SCA’s communities and its customers
  • A thought partner in organizational visioning and planning and how to improve our pre-existing systems
