What’s the best part about working at the Alliance?
“I love meeting new people. Not just in my own community but from all over the country. They come here to explore and celebrate some of their life’s great moments. Having worked at the GWCTA for 21 years, I have met and worked with some amazing people.”

What was your first job ever?
“I was 17 when I went to work for Zayres Department Store.  I started in women’s clothing and they moved me to automotive because I did not mind the grease and dirt. I also could be heard above the noise!”

“I have always loved history even in school it was my favorite subject. We have some pretty awesome bragging rights living in Williamsburg, our nation started here. I love the magic of Christmas at Busch Gardens Christmas Town and walking downtown in Colonial Williamsburg in the Fall. I grew up going to Jamestown and Yorktown beach. I can’t imagine not living here; it’s been my home all my life.”
