Crystal WeersingAdministrative Assistant
What do you do at the GHACF?
In simple terms, I provide office support for the foundation. I not only support the daily functions of the office, but I get to support my team with any administrative needs that they have as well. My job covers a wide variety of responsibilities, which is what I love about it.
How long have you been with the GHACF?
I started in March 2019.
Why do you work at the GHACF?
I am excited to work with people who also want to make a difference in the community. I have been looking for professional growth and I feel like GHACF will be just that place. I loved the organization and the staff immediately, and I’ve grown to love the position and the variety of projects that I’m involved with.
Education & Experience
My career began right after high school as a Teacher Assistant at a local early childhood center. I had a true joy and passion working with children and enjoyed it so much that I continued teaching children for over ten years. As I got older and felt like I was missing something, I became an Administrative Assistant for a real estate office in Holland. It taught me the most about what being an Administrative Assistant was all about. At the beginning of 2019, I found my way to the Grand Haven Area Community Foundation, and right away the job responsibilities and team felt right. I am excited to be a part of an organization that works closely with the community and am looking forward to my future here at GHACF.
Do you have a leisure activity or hobby?
Spending time with my husband and step-daughter and enjoying any time I can get with my family. Family is everything to me.
What’s something most people don’t know about you?
I was recently married on my birthday.
