Jobs Landed: Louise Gradwohl

Working as the Executive Director of the Old Town Commercial Association is probably the best job I could ask for straight out of college.  I have the opportunity to collaborate with multiple stakeholders and produce large scale festivals and events, beautification projects and community enhancements to benefit the revitalization efforts for Old Town Lansing. I work with 1300 volunteers annually, manage 5 committees plus additional festival committees throughout the year, and train 5 interns from Michigan State University on the Michigan Main Street Program. I do everything from plant flowers to producing the annual festival fundraisers. With all of that amazing creative community energy that surrounds me daily from the families that visit our office to the business owners who support OTCA's efforts - I am able to combine my unique ideas with the community to execute our Old Town Lansing community development and economic revitalization program. I am extremely lucky to have this opportunity to make an impact and leave a legacy on the Greater Lansing community I love so much.
