Meet Catherine Jones, HR Generalist at MDU Construction Services Group, and self-proclaimed steriotypical crazy owner of two cats, Tonks and Yoda. Catherine, is originally from small-town Golden Valley, ND and is an active member of both the Ambassador and Service Teams.
As an invested member, Catherine has seen the Bismarck-Mandan Young Professional Network to allow for improvement of not only herself, but of her peers. When asked why she feels it’s important to be a part of the YP Network, she states, “I don’t think there is another organization that through a single membership, has such a wide reaching positive impact.”
Catherine firmly believes that you should find something that makes you happy, and try to do it, even if it cannot be what you do for a living. That’s part of why she went into HR, she states, to make a difference for one person and use that inspiration each week.
Outside of YPN, Catherine actively supports United Way and the Dolly Parton Imagination Library. She feels strongly that having access to books, is something every kid should have.
In her free time, she loves watching action and sci-fi movies, being a mediocre gardener, and reading. Not to mention, Catherine loves baking. In fact, while growing up and participating in 4-H, she won Grand Champion Ribbon for angel food cake. We know if there is ever a YPN baking contest, Catherine will be ready!
