Meet Mindy Elmer
Celebrating her 10-year anniversary with Innovative this year, Mindy is a Regional Vice President for the Northeast region.
What do you like best about your job?
The autonomy. I’m able to essentially manage my own business, with the support of our leadership.
What’s your favorite Innovative memory or experience?
I have great memories of the times when we’ve all been able to gather as a group. We really enjoy each other and have a lot of fun together.
Tell us about your family.
I’ve been married to my husband John for 18 years and we have two large rescues—Moose and JoJo.
What does a perfect weekend look like for you?
I love being outside—hiking, snow or water skiing, and golfing.
What are you passionate about outside of work?
I’d have to say my family and my friends, especially entertaining and cooking for them.
What’s your favorite vacation spot?
In the summer, its Lake Canandaigua in western New York, and in the winter we like Steamboat Springs, Colorado.
