Personal Volunteer Activities

Great Swamp Conservancy

2015-2017     Grant Writing Volunteer

I assisted members of the Board of Directors in submitting grant applications and final reports. My wordsmithing, organizational, and software skills were an asset in gathering the information, putting it together in a Word document for writing and revising the grant, and then copying and pasting it into the foundation’s online application.

Central New York Roller Derby

2012 – 2015      Sponsorship Committee Chair

I oversaw the league’s sponsorship committee, which is responsible for bringing in new sponsors, thanking them, and rewarding them for their contribution. I conducted monthly meetings and managed the committee’s activities.

Delta Girls Rock Camp

July 2006 – July 2011      Volunteer and  Layout Artist

I was a volunteer for this week-long day camp for 5 years. The first summer, I was the Showcase Coordinator. The last 3 summers, I handled graphic design of the camper guidebooks (2009, Camper Guidebook 2010 FINAL_reduced, 2011) and showcase programs.

2007 – 2009     Copy Editor and Layout Artist

I was a Copy Editor for marketing materials, the website, and bout programs. The second year, I was a Layout Artist for the bout programs and I coordinated and manned the Information Booth at bouts, which provided fans with information on how to join, how to become a sponsor or volunteer, and upcoming events.
