Get to Know YPK Professional Development Co-Chair, Sable Weander!

YPK allows young professionals an opportunity to build their networks, improve their leadership skills, and give back to the community. YPK also introduces their members to businesses and venues around the city that they may not have been familiar with. I think that being active in the community, both socially and through servitude, helps young professionals become more invested in the place we live and work.
