FALL 2016


Terri Moldenhauer

Mortgage Planner,

Blackhawk Bank



Ambassador Positions Held:

Most recently, Terri was an

integral part of the Golf Outing committee. She is also very

active with ribbon cuttings and attending BA5 events.

Why is being a Goodwill Ambassador important to you?

I am very passionate about giving back to the communities we live and work in.

Being a Forward Janesville Goodwill Ambassador gives me an avenue to

accomplish that. I also love the relationships that are cultivated with the fellow

ambassadors, assigned business members and the new member businesses

through the ribbon cuttings and Business After Five events.

What have you learned from a fellow Ambassador or business

member that impacted you, personally or professionally?

One of my member businesses is the GIFTS Men’s Shelter. I met with the

wonderful director, Stephanie, and it truly opened my eyes and heart to the level

of homelessness in our community. GIFTS is special because attention is given

to the root cause of each guest’s homelessness. Before an individual can get to

work rebuilding his life, he must be given hope. Hope and healing are available

at GIFTS. It touched me so greatly that I requested that Blackhawk Bank donate

the proceeds of our April Jeans Day fundraiser to the shelter.

What was your most interesting Ambassador experience?

By the time this runs, it will have already taken place, but I have a feeling the most

interesting and fun Ambassador event will be the BA5 we are hosting at

Blackhawk Bank on August 18!

What is your favorite Forward Janesville event and why?

The Business After Five events. It gives me an opportunity to learn more about

a member business and to network with the many wonderful people in this


What advice would you give to a new Ambassador?

Jump in with both feet and take advantage of every possible opportunity. Go out

and meet your member businesses. You have an invaluable opportunity to be

their liaison to Forward Janesville and to help them seize all the value of their


Why is red your new, favorite color?

The color red is the color of energy, passion and action!

Do you have a favorite quote or saying?

“Let’s work to become so good that we’ll succeed no matter how many bad calls

the ref may throw at us!” –John Miller

“All of our dreams can come true—if we have the courage to pursue them.” –

Everything we do must be well reasoned, not

a matter of habit or convention.



Here we look at organization development

not as a time for training and classes but as a

detailed plan of execution of how we are

going to get from Point A to Point B by

building sustainable capabilities.


Good communication is above all else

authentic and purposeful.

Goodwill Ambassador Since:

Terri became a Goodwill Ambassador in 2007 and served

for several years, then rejoined in July of 2015.
