“My work feels most impactful when I contribute to a successful project that creates jobs in a rural area. Those dollars will circulate in that local community and support their schools, municipal services, and quality of life.” 

“The people are one of my favorite things about working at EDPNC. Everyone is so welcoming and truly cares about the work they do. I came into this job knowing nothing about the world of economic development, but my coworkers have been extremely helpful.”
