What’s the best part of working at the Alliance?

“My favorite part of working with the Alliance is getting to contribute to the success of the community we live in by displaying all of the unique businesses, organizations and individuals that live and thrive in this area in a way that gives people a glimpse of a Greater Williamsburg they may not have even known about.”

What was your first job ever? 

“My first job ever was as a camp counselor at my local YMCA during the summers when I was in high school and college. It was the best thing in the world at the time, because I loved being outside and playing sports and this job gave me the opportunity to do both while making an impact on kids – and getting paid.”

“It’s more than meets the eye. Most people hear Williamsburg and think of the history, but it’s so much more than that and it’s got a little something for everyone and there are so many different groups of people represented here. I’m excited to unearth that through social media.”
