I joined The River Food Pantry’s team in November 2015. Before The River, I worked at a daily newspaper where I spent my days outdoors, getting to meet interesting people and share their stories. Now at The River, I get to meet such incredible and a wide range of people in the community, whether they’re supporters or shoppers, and share their story of how they’re connected to The River. I also manage The River’s social media platforms, create our newsletters/E-newsletters, help plan fundraising events, and coordinate grant applications. I’m so honored to have met such great people in the community.
I feel lucky to go to work everyday knowing that I’m part of this team that is dedicated to making a difference! I am so excited to contribute to The River’s mission and help provide healthy and nutritional food as well as encouragement to our shoppers.
I’ve found a new love for biking and running, especially around Lake Monona. I also enjoy cooking with my boyfriend Steven, going to live shows, hiking, taking road trips and visiting new places, photographing nature, and reading. I have two adorable house rabbits named Ollie and Oscar.
