Q: What drew you to serve with AmeriCorps?
A: I had previously been working with a for-profit company and got a chance to reevaluate my path when COVID hit. I realized I hadn’t been happy in what I was doing and decided to look into positions with the nonprofit sector. AmeriCorps gave me the chance to reorient my life to align with my values.

Q: What are you most excited to do in your new service position?
A: I am most excited to make a difference in the lives of the kids served by the education program at Turnip Green.

Q: What is a silly/random fact about you?
A: I’m currently on day 131 of my Duolingo streak!

Q: How do you spend your time when you’re not serving or volunteering?
A: You can often find me trying to make new vegetarian recipes, singing the songs stuck in my head, reading yet another biography, or swimming in the lake.
