Loyal Contributor | Francine Mazza, PHR

Francine Mazza, PHR is originally from Southern California and moved to Southern Nevada in 1996. She has two daughters; Shelby (17) and Sophia (16), who have grown up in Southern Nevada.

“This is a great community and we really love living here,” said Francine.

Francine has worked for Enterprise Rent-A-Car since graduating from California State University, Northridge in 1992. She started out as a Management Trainee in Southern California and has progressed in the company to her current role as a Talent Acquisition Manager in Nevada.

“My daily activities range from career fairs, working with our local colleges and universities, interviewing for top talent and working with our employees to help them achieve their career goals,” said Francine.

Growing up, Francine was taught the importance of giving back and this value has stuck with her throughout her life.

“As a mother, I am now raising my daughters to believe and understand that every little thing that they can and will do may have a major impact on someone out there in need,” said Francine. “It warms my heart when I see one of my daughters run back into a store to get a bottle of water or dog food for a homeless person out in the streets with their dog.  It is comforting to know that my family has the means and opportunity to support our community by being a United Way Templar member and being involved in United Way functions.”

Thanks to Enterprise and their partnership with United Way, Francine has been a United Way donor and supporter since she was a new employee back in 1992.

“I have always felt that it is important to give back to the community that I live in and have been to several events throughout the valley to help support the charities that the United Way supports,” said Francine. “I feel fortunate to have been able to continue giving back to the community where my daughters have been raised through my involvement and donations with United Way.”
