Urban Tree Education Coordinator at Nashville Tree Foundation
Studied at University of Central Arkansas
Q: What drew you to serve with AmeriCorps?
A: It’s truly a unique experience that allows one to connect with the community and develop professional skills while working side by side with a multitude of nonprofits.
Q: What are you most excited to do in your new service position?
A: Getting my hands in the soil and planting trees to help restore the tree canopy after the devastating tornado and powerful storms blew through Nashville.
Q: What is a silly/random fact about you?
A: My biggest childhood fear was butterflies. I was convinced if it got too close to them I’d either hurt or kill them on accident, so I’d run away every time they came near me.
Q: How do you spend your time when you’re not serving or volunteering?
A: When I’m not serving or volunteering, I’m probably out on a hiking trail, at a park slacklining, or rolling down some hills on my longboard.
