Q: Three things you want folks to know about you.

  1. I am from Richmond and love working hard to continue to better our community.
  2. When I am not working, I love traveling and making yummy meals for friends and family.
  3. When I am not working hard at Sportable, I am also an active member of the outdoor and environmental community in Richmond.

Q: Three things you want folks to know about your work.

  1. Sportable’s mission is to provide recreational opportunities for people who have a physical disability or visual impairment; we provide 12 year round sports. We also do a Changing Perceptions in schools program.
  2. During volunteer training, I do disability etiquette portion of training, which is eye opening for some volunteers. Many people want to volunteer, but are intimidated with working with someone who has a disability. My goal is to help them feel relaxed and confident.
  3. Our athletes are just like you and me and many of them are competitive athletes.

Q: Why do you love the profession of volunteer administration?

I am an extrovert so I enjoy meeting new people and exposing them to what Sportable is all about!

Q: What are most looking forward to with GRAVA?

I have enjoyed getting to know different professionals in the volunteer management industry.

Q: Any other exciting news or information you would like to share?

Just bought a house in Northside. 🙂
