Emily Lovell, Administrative Assistant

What do you like best about working at the Center?

My favorite thing about working at DMPCC is the friendly and kind environment. I appreciate the genuine interactions I have with others, making the atmosphere very delightful. It makes me feel good to be a part of a team that supports one another!

What is your favorite thing to do when you’re not at work?

I really enjoy getting in touch with my creative side. I have been working on many projects. I like to spend time painting, crafting polymer clay earrings, and painting fun designs on thrifted clothing. I also love spending time outside. I often find myself at Greenwood Park in Des Moines appreciating the wildflowers and walking on the trails.

What is your favorite color?

I have many favorite colors and it is always changing. I tend to go through “color phases” and surround myself with my favorite color at that time. At the moment, I am very fond of lilac purple.

 What is your favorite quote?

I’ve always been fond of the quote; “It is what it is”.  This helps me to accept experiences as they are and be able to go with the flow!
