Favorite Park: West


I am very proud to be the leader of the GIVE 365 Volunteer and Outreach program for Ann Arbor Parks and Recreation. I have a master's degree in Parks, Recreation and Tourism Resources and I am passionate about public spaces and leisure opportunities for all the ways they enrich life! It is a joy to work in this city as the Ann Arbor park system is large, diverse and oh, so special. The GIVE program is rooted in community engagement and volunteerism and we are so fortunate to be in a community that values parks, stewardship and civic involvement. Here at GIVE, we work side by side with our volunteers to improve and enhance our awesome park system.

Meet the team!
