We asked Lovette, how do you feel about being the new Camp Destination Innovation program manager?  

“I feel like I have big shoes to fill! Mrs. Marquetta really paved the way, and set the culture for Camp DI. Camp DI really gave me the motivation to show up and view the attributes that make me different as my superpowers. I'm honored to be trusted with such a gem, and am excited to put my flair on it.”

What are you looking forward to most in this position? 

“I’m looking forward to mobilizing a community of young people who want to create change, today! The Wichita we want to see won't come about if everyone continues to wish. If every young person allows their unique background to fuel their passions, then Wichita will be transformed to fit the needs of every diverse young professional.”

Lovette is the perfect fit, and we are excited about the passion and energy she brings to this program! Destination Innovation is creating spaces for our young leaders today.
