I am pretty new but getting to know the folks that work at OP and seeing the Advancement team in action coordinating the Gala has been a really nice introduction to life at Opportunity Partners.

What do you love about your job at OP?
I am really excited to be developing and launching our volunteer program. I believe in building and supporting community and I believe bringing the energy and efforts of volunteers into our work will make OP stronger and creating lasting relationships between staff, people served and the greater community.

If you won the lottery, what’s the first thing you would do?
I’m a millennial, I would pay off debt.

What is your favorite indoor/outdoor activity?
I love gardening! I love being outdoors in the warmer months and being able to cultivate and tend to nature is such a gift!

Play the banjo. Or code.

Anything else you would like to share?
I am an East Coast transplant and it is a shame that you can’t find a good bagel or NY style pizza around here.
