  • Marcel Wijnen

Meena Kumar: Volunteer Of The Quarter -January 2021 - March 2021

The PMI Sacramento Valley Chapter thanks and recognizes you for your outstanding efforts!

How long have you been volunteering for PMI-SVC?
I have been volunteering for PMI-SVC since 2016.             

What roles have you filled? 
During 2016 and 2017, I worked on the Professional Development Day events and also helped with other Chapter activities. During 2019 and 2020, I served on the board as Vice President of Professional Development.

What do you enjoy about being a volunteer for the Chapter?
My greatest enjoyment from volunteer work has been the ability to influence new project managers and guide them with resources to do well in their careers. I also love working on events for the Chapter, which brings people together to learn, network, and promote the project management profession. We never talk about the hard work that volunteers put into running a Chapter, but I know, and truly appreciate my colleagues and associates for their part as volunteers. I have built great friendships through my volunteer work that will last my lifetime.

What do you like to do in your spare time?  
I love working in my garden; planting and watching something grow is a wonder of its own. I cherish time with my mom and welcome the precious moments we have together. I also spend time with my dog, Bella, who is also older and has been a valuable companion to me. I enjoy reading and listening to music and watching old mystery television shows like Matlock, Columbo, and The Equalizer.
