Q: What drew you to serve with AmeriCorps?
A: I have always been passionate about service and working alongside nonprofits. After graduating during a global pandemic, I knew I wanted my “next step” to be doing work that created a positive impact, and AmeriCorps offers an opportunity to do this!

Q: What are you most excited to do in your new service position?
A: I have never worked with an organization whose focus is food justice — I am so excited to learn more about this issue and work to alleviate food insecurity in the Nashville community.

Q: What is a silly/random fact about you?
A: I have traveled to six of the seven continents!

Q: How do you spend your time when you’re not serving or volunteering?
A: I love cooking and baking! I also love music — I sing and play a little piano!
