Where were you born and where did you grow up? I was born and raised in Stantonsburg, North Carolina. I moved to Raleigh for college and lived there for six years before my move to Charlotte.
Favorite way to spend a weekend or a Sunday afternoon? I love squeezing in a quick weekend trip with my boyfriend, Bailey. Additionally, I cherish any moments when I’m able to sit down at the piano – one of my favorite hobbies!
What excites you about your work at The Ivey and the contribution you make here? I love The Ivey because of how comprehensive its services are. Not only are the members provided with enriching and well-rounded programming, but families are engaged and fully supported as well. Being able to come to The Ivey every day feels more like a treat than a job.
The Ivey is a Charlotte, NC-based not-for-profit organization devoted to serving individuals living with early memory or cognition concerns and their caregivers through programs designed to optimize brain health for aging well, promote memory wellness, and provide respite and education for the whole family as well as the entire Charlotte community.
