I’m glad you’re here! I’ll share a bit about my story. It’s my hope you’ll be inspired to invite me into yours.
After a rewarding career managing marketing and communications at the Atlanta Community Food Bank, I embarked on a new journey extending my services to clients in new and familiar places: the Food Bank, Food Well Alliance, Imagine Yourself Organized, and JoyDance LLC, to name a few.
Being in community and volunteering are essential to me. I’ve recently had the privilege of lending my story gathering skills to the American Cancer Society for their “21 Years, 21 Stories” project in celebration of Atlanta Hope Lodge’s 21st anniversary. I currently serve as a board member with Southeast Gwinnett Cooperative Ministries, representing co-op church Grace Fellowship/Snellville. Last summer, I led more than 80 volunteers during our church’s week of service at the co-op’s Summer Manna program. I’m also co-leading a pilot storytelling project, My Story, which launched in early 2019. We are guiding 30 participants through the process of writing their life stories for future generations.
My passion for helping others record their stories began with a personal mission to document my parents’ remarkable lives through an oral history. Since summer of 2017, I’ve interviewed nearly 50 friends and family members. I’ve also shared my mother’s Hope Lodge story at the annual Hope Ball on behalf of the American Cancer Society and organized two tribute events honoring my father’s art and music: Legacy of a Legend at Sycamore Place Gallery on the Decatur Art Walk, and Legacy of a Legend II showcasing 40 musicians and a vast collection of his art at Chosewood Ballroom and Gallery. There’s a podcast concept in the works and I plan to launch it in the coming months. Stay tuned!
