Work: Anne Arundel County Public Library
I serve because: Dundalk is a historic town that continues to succeed and thrive because of its dedicated community members. My favorite thing about DRC is that it provides so many opportunities for Dundalk residents to give back and strengthen our community. Volunteers can help with community clean ups, annual festivals, Makers Markets, and Main Street projects – just to name a few! DRC’s volunteers and staff are committed to ensuring that Dundalk is a great place to live, work, and play!
How I got involved: I first got involved in DRC as a volunteer in 2010 when I purchased a house and returned to the Old Dundalk area after college. That year I helped with planning the annual Fall Festival and quickly became involved in many other DRC activities. I became a DRC board member in 2011 and have held a variety of roles, including Board Development Committee Chair.
Skills and expertise: My career as a branch manager in public libraries has given me experience as a community connector, supervisor, and fundraiser. I have served in a variety of community roles throughout Baltimore County.
