After nine years of dedication and hard work, Jennifer Frisbee (pictured, center, seated) decided it was time to bid adieu to Girl Scouts of Hawai`i. We celebrated her last day with laughter, tears and, of course, lots of delicious food. Though formally the Assistant Director of Membership and Program Services (MAPS), Jennifer has been known to wear many hats at the organization. Whenever anyone has a question, they will usually go to Jennifer first to get the answer. Aside from her extensive mental database of Girl Scout knowledge, Jennifer is best known in the office for her cute cubicle decorations–usually a sign she’s been exploring Pinterest–, funny lunchtime stories, and her shrimp étouffé, which is always a potluck must-have.
“Jennifer has been an invaluable part of our team here for a long time and words cannot express our gratitude to her for all the long hours she put into this organization. We will miss her but know she will thrive in whatever future endeavor she chooses to pursue.”
-Reyna Kaneko Chief Marketing Officer
