Here at TIF, we’re proud of the staff that carries out our mission on a daily basis. Their dedication and hard work truly change the lives of Immokalee’s children — and that’s why we’re taking the time to recognize these outstanding individuals. This week, we’re pleased to introduce you to Linsay Crovo. Linsay recently answered a few questions regarding the work that she does for TIF — and she also told us what snack she likes more than ice cream.
What is your job at The Immokalee Foundation?
I am a program manager in our Immokalee Office. Right now I’m working on a bunch of new programs that will continue to help give Immokalee students the opportunity to go to college as well as learn about the different fields of work that are available to them. Along with that, I am working on some after-school programs, such as golf, tennis, and soccer, with many more to come.
What is your favorite part about working for TIF?
Besides working with some of the best people I know, I’d have to say knowing and seeing the positive effects that we have on our TIF kids is the most rewarding part of this job — and I wouldn’t trade it for the world.
What is something unique about yourself?
Well, I’ve played soccer since I was four years old and played professional soccer for a little while after college.
What is your favorite ice cream flavor?
I’m not a big fan of ice cream, to be honest. I love Rita’s Italian Water Ice. I like the chocolate fudge brownie flavor the best. That’s definitely the one thing I miss from up north where I used to live. I don’t believe there are any Rita’s down here.
What would you like to see for the future of Immokalee?
Immokalee is such a wonderful place and most people who are not from here do not know just how amazing it is. My hope is that more people can experience the wonderful community of Immokalee that I have been so fortunate to become a part of.
What is your favorite movie?
I love funny movies. I’m not so much into gory horror type movies. My favorite though? Off the top of my head I’d have to say Bad Boys I and II with Will Smith and Martin Lawrence. I love to laugh!
