Director of Marketing & Fundraising
It was always a dream of mine to be a marketing coordinator of a non-profit as my career. Throughout leadership of justice initiative at James Madison University, volunteer work with local Shenandoah Valley organizations and a summer internship with the non-profit, Nomi Network, in New York City, I loved being a creative part of furthering the mission of great companies that were making an impact on the world. When I first heard about Adagio House and the work that they did, I knew it would be a perfect fit.
Throughout my teen and early adult years, I volunteered at a summer camp for individuals with disabilities, that also focused on being a place of rest and community for their families and caregivers. I had never fully understood the resilience these caregivers had until that first summer working at the camp, and how misunderstood they felt. Just like at that camp, I believe Adagio House provides a space for community and healing for those parents and caregivers. I love calling Harrisonburg home and enjoy spending my free time exploring local shops and restaurants and running my photography business.
