What is the best part of your job?
The people! Our members are wonderful; they are incredibly passionate about their work, and the work they do is truly amazing.
What do you actually do all day?
I help to organize the logistics for our events, manage our website, put together our newsletter, complete member research requests, and work with our amazing Emerging Leaders Learning Community! Every day is a little different. We joke that we do “all the things” since we’re a small team.
Why do you love where you live?
I fell in love with North Carolina after attending Appalachian State University; this state has a bit of everything. I enjoy being outdoors and exploring North Carolina parks with my dog in my free time; hiking, kayacking, camping, or reading in my hammock.
Most played song on your playlist?
My most played song is Smoothie Song by Nickel Creek, it’s a lifelong favorite. I love to listen to it (and all Nickel Creek songs) while driving on the Blue Ridge Parkway.
Tough question. I’ll read anything and everything; philosophy, nonfiction, sci-fi... it’s all good (since I need to read something other than Harry Potter). I really love Douglas Adams, his writing is quirky and insightful.
