Steamboat Living: 20 Under 40-Maggie Griffin
Skiing brought Maggie Griffin to Steamboat Springs almost nine years ago, but today she stays because of how at home she feels in the community.
Griffin has been with Steamboat Ski & Resort Corp. since day one; starting as a lift operator, she’s worked her way up to Operation Support Supervisor with Central Reservations.
“The thing I’ve liked best about working here,” she says, “is building relationships.”
Although she has faced challenges along the way, those relationships have given her a support system that makes tackling just about anything possible.
While leading the central reservations charge at ski corp., Griffin has also been a part of many community organizations, including the 2013 Leadership Steamboat class and Young Professionals Network.
“You learn a lot, but you’re also encouraged to be creative and think about how we can directly impact the community,” she says of Leadership Steamboat.
For Griffin it’s all about giving back to the community she’s proud to be involved in.
Coworkers describe the 31-year-old as someone who is “always ready to take on a new challenge,” with a can-do attitude that inspires others to do the same.
For Griffin, having positive energy and enthusiasm are paramount, for both her professional career and philanthropy. These qualities, she says, have given her an edge and help define who she is and how she can best impact her workplace and the community. “I take pride in having perseverance, a strong sense of loyalty to Steamboat, and being true to who I am,” she says.
Challenging herself has always been central to her mission and one of the greatest ways she’s found success. She applies the same philosophy to bettering the community.
“The fun thing about living in a small community is not only do you feel more a part of it, but you also have a greater chance of making an impact,” she says.
