What is your birthday?

February 21

What is your work position?

Development and Communications Coordinator

Where did you graduate college?

I am VCU Alum!

What do you enjoy doing in your time outside work hours?

I love to run, garden and do triathlons!

What do you do for RMHC of Richmond?

I do the social media! Also, I manage the donor database and process all donations.

What’s your favorite part of working here?

How inspiring each day can be. I get to see families pull together to make it through the most troubling of times, volunteers giving up hours every day just because they want to help, and donors giving what they can so we can keep our doors open. I get to see kids wanting to help and donate to help the sick kids and it’s just incredible to see this side of humanity every day.

What has been one of the most memorable moments from working here?

I think one of the most memorable moments was when we had the birthday party for Miracle. It was my first opportunity to see just how much of a home RMHC of Richmond becomes for families- and how important these celebrations were.

Tell us a fun fact about yourself.

I can walk on my hands!
