Charmaine Mullings

May 2018

HYPE Member Since: 2017

Committee Member On: Personal & Professional Development, Social Events, and Community Involvement

She sits on nonprofit boards and a part of other groups:
I am a member of the board of Jewish Family Services of Greater Hartford, a nonprofit organization that provides education, counseling and other support services to the community at large with the goal of assisting anyone who comes to Jewish Family services for help progress toward emotional well-being, self-reliance and more positive relationships. I enjoy giving back to society and I am excited to be in a role with Jewish Family Services to help further it’s cause. I am also a member of South Windsor Jaycees. The chapter brings young people together to not just make a difference in the community but also the lives of its members. Leadership skills are taught through community service and the chapter coordinates a wide variety of events throughout the year to meet both the needs of the community and its members.

Her favorite thing about HYPE is:

My favorite thing about HYPE is the diversity it offers in all the events and activities which gives you the opportunity to meet different people from varying backgrounds. HYPE gives you the opportunity to not just extend your professional network but make new friends, while at the same time getting to learn more about the region and all it has to offer.

She is currently reading:
I am reading The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg: Why We Do What We Do In Life and Business. I would recommend this book for anyone who needs to make a change in their personal and professional life. Habits are powerful and we all have some habit(s) we struggle with that we need to change. When we understand how habits work, we will have a better chance of eliminating behaviors that cause us to stick to those bad habits and implementing new ones to transform our lives for the better.

Her hobbies/interests outside of work are:

I try to be outside as much as possible and one of my favorite things to do is hiking. I also like trying different cuisines so I am always seeking out the next new dish to try. I also like reading and volunteering.
