15 years

What do you love most about working for Lynchburg Parks and Recreation?:

I love that opportunity I get to meet so many different people from all walks of life. My job keeps me busy often times, looking for the “needle in a haystack” and which can quickly turn to interacting with citizens and other employees. I love to see the growth of the department since I began here many years ago.

Why is Miller Park your favorite park?:

As a child I would visit my great grandmother who lived by the park. Being one of the oldest parks in the area, it is filled with wonderful history. I loved going to the pool, walking in the park, and playing on the “old, metal” playground equipment.

What is your favorite Lynchburg Parks and Recreation memory?:

There are so many to great memories. My best are all the friendships I have made over the years. I have worked with amazing staff that I still keep in very close contact with over the years. Having taking classes that Parks & Recreation offers, I have made great friends too, and look forward to many more opportunities to get to know so many great people.
