Each month, the Young Nonprofit Professionals Network RVA (YNPN RVA) will be sharing highlights of their members. If you’d like to become a member of YNPN RVA or learn more about our upcoming events for 2019, go here.
Job Title: Program and Grants Manager
Company: Robins Foundation
Why did you join YNPN RVA and when?
I joined at the beginning of 2019 to start taking professional development and networking seriously.
What is your career background?
Despite other internships during my academic career, I have worked at Robins Foundation since my undergraduate graduation in 2017.
What are your career goals?
Someday, I want to run my own nonprofit.
Why do you do what you do?
I feel more than a desire to give back to my community and country. I feel a sense of obligation and duty to do so. I have too good of a life to selfishly sit idle while others struggle.
Favorite thing to do in Richmond?
Community yoga in Byrd Park/ Maymont (hosted by King of Pops)
If you were to take over the YNPN RVA Instagram page for a day, what would you show us?
It would be great to show on the YNPN RVA Instagram examples of yo-pros getting involved and volunteering at local nonprofits (in the field, on junior boards, fundraising, etc.)
What else should we know about you?
I’m so stoked to get one of those YNPN RVA t-shirts this year. :).
