  2. 2. Rikki  White  has  been  the  Events  Coordinator  at  the  Cache  Chamber  since  July  of  2012.  Her  main  responsibilities  in  this  position  are  to  plan  and  execute  exciting  events  for  the  Cache  Chamber  of  Commerce.  These  events  give  themembership  value  through  providing  networking  opportunities  with  other  businesses  and  with  the  Cache  Valley  community.      Rikki  was  born  and  raised  in  Evanston,  Wyoming.  After  High  School,  she  joined  the  US  Navy  as  a  Hospital  Corpsman,  and    loved  her  time  in  the  Navy.  While  in  active  duty  she  met  her  husband,  Matt,  who  is  originally  from  Indianapolis.  After  their  daughter  was  born,  Matt  reenlisted,  and  Rikki  continued  to  enjoy  their  Navy  life  from  the  perspective  of  Navy  wife.  Matt  served  for  10  years  during  which  time  Rikki  attended  college  and  worked  in  various  Department  of  Defense  postings.    Many  of  her  jobs  over  these  years  were  in  the  health  care  field-­‐  CNA,  Massage  Therapist,  and  EMT.      When  Matt  separated  from  the  Navy  eight  years  ago,  the  Whites  decided  it  was  time  to  move  closer  to  family.  They  had  added  two  sons  to  their  family,  and  wanted  their  children  to  enjoy  a  sense  of  family  and  community.  They  chose  to  move  to  Cache  Valley  because  not  only  was  it  geographically  close  to  their  Wyoming  family,  but  they  felt  that  it  was  a  safe  and  family  friendly  environment.  They  have  been  here  for  over  seven  years.      In  2011,  Rikki  was  able  to  (finally)  complete  her  college  education  earning  a  bachelor’s  degree  in  Information  Technology  with  a  focus  on  multi-­‐media  and  visual  design.    She  brings  this  education  to  her  work  at  the  Cache  Chamber  of  Commerce  in  many  ways-­‐  fixing  the  simpler  networking  issues  that  arise,  using  graphic  design  work  in  marketing  campaigns,  and  increasing  the  Chamber’s  social  media  presence.      Rikki  loves  working  with  the  Cache  Chamber  of  Commerce.  She  says  the  people  she  meets  every  day  inspire  her  with  their  business  sense  and  drive  to  make  the  Cache  Valley  Community  better  for  all  of  us.      Finally,  among  all  of  the  positive  people  she  meets  and  learns  from  everyday,  she  feels    so  honored  to  be  a  part  of  Cache  Valley’s  Women  in  Business.  WIB  has  been  very  beneficial  to  her  through  the  relationships  she  has  been  able  to  build  with  other  like-­‐minded  women  in  Cache  Valley  who  like  her,  are  struggling  to  juggle  family  and  career.  Rikki  has  learned  so  much  from  all  of  the  women  about  how  to  do  this  juggling  act  a  little  more  successfully.
