Members have access to the use of the community room at no cost, as does the rest of the community. Our awesome staff can help prepare you for your next adventure.Kathey-Duggan_Denali_2017

What are your primary responsibilities?
Day to day operations, hiring, training and helping the store achieve financial goals. Finding opportunities for involvement in the community in a way that supports our goal of getting people outdoors.

What do you love about your job?
Helping customers find just the right item for the their next great adventure. Whether that adventure is a walk down Main Street or hiking in The Whites. We live in such a beautiful area of the state--it's a joy to encourage people to enjoy it.

Name your favorite Chamber service, program or event.
I just attended my first Chamber meeting and enjoyed the opportunity to meet and chat with other members. Posting job opportunities on the site is also a great benefit.

What are some of your interests or hobbies?
Anytime I can spend outdoors--hiking, kayaking, biking or just hanging out in my hammock. Time spent with my children--now that they are grown men--is always precious!

What is your personal philosophy on how to be successful?
Break every goal up into small manageable parts and tackle one at a time. Find at least one highlight from every experience and celebrate it. Appreciating the small successes will lead to bigger successes. Not every success is defined in a monetary way. Being kind, generous and thoughtful are all characteristics I see in successful people.
