Deanna Hogenkamp

Deanna Hogenkamp is the Experiential Learning Coordinator at Mason High School. In this role she is responsible for assisting students in career exploration opportunities. These opportunities include guest speakers, job site visits, job shadowing, classroom projects and internships. She meets one-on-one with students to discuss careers and help them discover career paths that interest them. She also prepares these students for upcoming opportunities through business professional resume development and mock interviews. The other component of her role are the relationships she builds with businesses and community members to be able to provide experience for Mason students. 

Prior to her current role at Mason, she was teaching Financial Literacy and Principles of Marketing. Deanna is a 2010 Mason graduate. After high school she got her Bachelor of Arts in Marketing at Wittenberg University while playing collegiate golf. From there she went to The Ohio State University to pursue her Masters of Educational Studies in Workforce Development and Education. 

When Deanna is not working, she enjoys playing golf with her husband Ben, watching the Pittsburgh Steelers and cooking! 

MADE Chamber and community involvement:

I am currently involved in the Leaders are MADE Cohort. In April I was one of the presenters for the Meet and Eat.

 

Why is being part of the Mason Deerfield Chamber important to you/your organization?

It is important for Mason City Schools to be a part of the Chamber as it allows for a strong relationship between the schools and community. Which then helps provide wonderful experiences for our students both in and outside the classroom.

Fun facts about you/your business:

I gradated from MHS back in 2010. I am diehard Pittsburgh Steelers Fan. I love to golf.

Like the emerald, businesses and organizations have many facets. Which facet is your strength and why?

I would say my strength is my ability to build relationships. While meeting with students to discuss career opportunities I take the time to learn who they are and why they are interested in a specific career field. I do my best to retain this information and check in with them in future meetings. At the end of the day it is about making students confident in themselves for their future and this is done by listening to what they have to share.

If your company culture, or personal persona, had to be summed up in five words or less, reflective of a gemstone, what would they be?
