Before Brian Jensen moved his family from Utah to the Central Coast a couple years ago and began working at CoastHills Credit Union, he lived, worked and played all in the same cozy part of downtown Salt Lake City.
That made it easy for Brian to stay active and engaged with the community that mattered so much to his neighbors, co-workers and friends.
Frankly, that strong sense for his community was something the CoastHills branch manager had been longing for since moving to California, and it was something he regained as an ambassador for the Santa Maria Valley Chamber of Commerce.
“I couldn’t quite put my finger on it, but I felt something important missing from my home life,” said Brian, who fosters business development from CoastHills’ branch in The Crossroads shopping center. “After I became an ambassador for the chamber and attended more chamber-sponsored events, it became clear that I hadn’t been as plugged in as I was in Salt Lake City.
“This experience has been the perfect remedy.”
Brian was so engaged since becoming an Ambassador in January, 2016 he was named Ambassador of the Quarter for January, February and March, 2016.
