Hi Everyone!

I am AA LEAD’s new Volunteer Maryland Coordinator. Volunteer Maryland is an AmeriCorps affiliate, based out of the MD governor’s office that specializes recruiting and training volunteer coordinators, which they then match with local non-profits. It’s been a crazy first month with lots to learn and do, but everyone has been helpful and welcoming!

I’m originally from outside of Nashville, TN, but I’ve been living in Knoxville, TN for the past two years working on an MA in Chinese History (which I completed in May). Before that, I was living in China, where I spent a year teaching English and another volunteering in the social welfare system through an international NGO. I speak Mandarin and am always looking for opportunities to practice.

I’m new to the DC area and have only just started discovering all this city has to offer, so feel free to give me your suggestions of places to eat and fun things to see and do!
