New VolunteerLocal team member!

Hey VolunteerLocal! I’m Lucy, the new (Happy) Community Builder. I can tell you that I am literally the happiest to be getting this opportunity to work with such awesome people dedicated to volunteering.

I graduated from the University of Iowa in English and Creative Writing. I was initially worried that those degrees would lead to me becoming a starving artist, and I love food way too much for that. Instead, it took me down an amazing path working with different nonprofits in the Chicagoland area and doing local volunteer work until I landed here, your new VolunteerLocal customer support rep, ready to answer any and all of your questions. You’ll also be seeing me on the blog and over on our social media.

I can further tell you that I am addicted to tacos, I am both a dog AND a cat person (breaking barriers one fluffy creature at a time), I was a synchronized swimmer for exactly one year in high school, and I am an expert knitter.

I’m absolutely overjoyed to be a new part of this community. Tweet me at @luceedubs or follow VolunteerLocal on Twitter, Facebook, or Linkedin

Happy Day, Happy Volunteering!
