Bon Voyage! DeAnna Adams
When DeAnna Adams took an interim position with the Santa Fe Business Incubator she didnâ€™t know what to expect. Nine months later, sheâ€™s ecstatic about the experience. â€œI consider it a privilege to be a part of this lovely group of people.â€
â€œI realized I could serve as an Interim Incubation Professional in most any capacity at any locale, taking the pressure off the powers that be to help the hiring process,â€ she said.
Shared Bioscience Laboratory Project
DeAnna stepped in to oversee project and grant management for the construction of a new shared Bioscience Laboratory at the Santa Fe Business Incubator. Her experience with other Business Incubation projects allowed her to monitor benchmarks and Federal reporting. Her contributions toward a successful recent audit confirmed an outstanding effort.
â€œI bring an ability to step in and give immediate value to an Incubation program,â€ DeAnna stated, â€œbecause Iâ€™ve worked in a variety of situations at other Incubators.â€
During her time at SFBI, DeAnna helped present trainings and client appreciation events. If sheâ€™s got one message for clients, itâ€™s â€œKeep putting one foot in front of the other and make your dreams come true.â€
Itâ€™s not hard to enjoy working with DeAnna. Sheâ€™s passionate about education: â€œlearn to do it right so you will have a good foundation,â€ emphatic that Incubation works: â€œthe salvation of our economy,â€ and willing to roll up her sleeves and get busy: â€œI believe you roll with it, you pitch in and make the operation run smoothly.â€
SFBI President Marie Longserre said, â€œDeAnna loves Business Incubation and working with entrepreneurs. She has been a bright light and made a positive impact during her time here. We will miss her. Iâ€™m sure sheâ€™ll take a little bit of Santa Fe with her as she helps shape the next project.â€
The â€œnextâ€ project is already underway. DeAnna leaves December 13 to work on a new Incubator program for the Choctaw Nation in Oklahoma.
