Every Member Has a Story
We each have a story to share. Where we came from, how we met the most important people in our lives, what our hopes and dreams for the future are.
Sharing a story deepens understanding and can bring us closer together. Stories tell how we have arrived at this moment, and where we want to go from here. In many ways, stories define us. Some people’s stories have even changed the world.
At Pacific Crest, each person’s story is important. It’s a privilege to capture a few of our member’s stories to share with you.
