Volunteer Maryland builds stronger, healthier communities by empowering all Marylanders to take action.
As the Director of Volunteer Maryland, I take a lead role in AmeriCorps member and nonprofit training, Volunteer Maryland staff supervision, fund raising, and financial management. My history with national and community service began as a member of AmeriCorps*National Civilian Community Corps after graduating from York College of Pennsylvania. Since then, I have served as an AmeriCorps*VISTA member, a Training and Technical Assistance Coordinator with the Florida Alliance for Student Service, a Service-Learning Coordinator with the National Civilian Community Corps and a Program Manager for the national office of Experience Corps in Washington, D.C.
I have a diverse training background and have received training in Therapeutic Crisis Intervention, Volunteer Mentor Supervision, and Low Ropes Facilitation. I enjoy training tremendously and have facilitated workshops at the 15th and 16th Annual National Service-Learning Conferences, the 2005 Gulf South Summit, 2005 Florida AmeriCorps and National Service Conference, and 2007 AmeriCorps*National Direct Best Practices Conference, as well as numerous other volunteer management, service-learning, youth leadership, and conflict management seminars.
