Tyrah Cobb-Davis

Urban Forestry Coordinator at Cumberland River Compact

Studied at Randolph College

Q: What drew you to serve with AmeriCorps?
A: Honestly, I was drawn to the AmeriCorps program after learning more about NCCC (National Civilian Community Corps). I liked that program in particular because of the opportunity to travel and see new places. I ultimately chose to serve with the HON AmeriCorps Program because I think that being in the same place for a while has a greater impact on the organization and I was really drawn to the location and being part of a larger cohort. I think that service opportunities provide unique opportunities to gain professional work and general life experiences! I am excited to see what this year has in store.

Q: What are you most excited to do in your new service position?
A: I am most excited about meeting new people and experiencing a new place! The position is also pretty interesting. I have recently taking a liking to trees and am looking forward to spending the year as an Urban Forestry Coordinator. In general, I am excited to leave my home state of Maryland for a bit to see what Nashville has in store.

Q: What is a silly/random fact about you?
A: Ice cream is my all time favorite and I oftentimes eat it for dinner. It is a must for me to find a new spot when I visit new places. 

Q: How do you spend your time when you’re not serving or volunteering?
A: I enjoy the outdoors, reading, bingeing TV shows, and finding new ice cream shops and local restaurants.
