Experience
Research and Policy Manager, 01/2018 to Current
Alamogordo Public Schools Alamogordo, NM,

For the past 9 years, I have managed a volunteer corps of 50 + people. My responsibilities include recruiting, interviewing, training and scheduling to ensure our guests have an enjoyable experience while they are visiting our site. Their training consists of one introductory class facilitated by myself and other coworkers, shadowing a seasoned volunteer, and taking me on a tour of the facility to make sure all tours are similar. Also crucial to the training is the volunteer manual that I created which serves as a guide of expectations and an overview of the Virginia War Memorial’s history and current exhibits. I plan and orchestrate volunteer quarterly meetings, with one catered appreciation luncheon each year. I am also a member of the Greater Richmond Association for Volunteer Administration, where I was elected and served on the Board as Treasurer from 2014-2016. In this position, I handled all transactions, including reimbursements, payments, and membership dues. At the end of each year, I prepared the annual budget for members to approve. I am a current member and attend monthly membership meetings.

My work with historical research encompasses database entry, website production, and collaborating with local museums, libraries and historical societies to uncover the stories and photographs of those Virginians who gave the ultimate sacrifice from World War II to present day Global War on Terrorism. My quest for information has been featured in the Richmond Times Dispatch and has garnered response from the public. With this information, we can keep these heroes’ memories alive which, in turn, is a great comfort to their families. In turn, I have worked with various news stations in the Richmond area with their own research questions. Along with this research, I, along with our Archivist, have conducted three workshops on military records which assists the public in obtaining military and genealogical records. Each workshop saw around 15-20 participants.

Each year, the Memorial hosts an annual TGA 5K - They Gave All, in which I assist with the logistics regarding registrations, packet pick-up, volunteer recruitment and management, and Memorial flag production and placement.

From 2011 to 2017, I managed our office supplies which included ordering printing supplies, name badges, and branded apparel for volunteers and staff. Along with office management, I took on responsibilities pertaining to facilities management such as scheduling fire drills, reporting any broken and burnt out lights to the Department of General Services, and conducting periodical checks on our First Aid kits and defibrillators.

During this time, I also oversaw the USS Birmingham Research Library which consisted of taking in donations from the public and hosting our annual book sale. From the book sale, we raised over $1,000 for our Foundation that helps fund our educational programs and events.

Education Assistant, 04/2011 to 01/2014

As the Education Assistant, I worked in tandem with the Director of Education with planning statewide teacher institutes, local student seminars, educational programs, and the annual TGA 5k – They Gave All. Pertaining to the teacher institutes, each summer we traveled across the state to work with various museums such as the National Museum of the Marine Corps, Woodrow Wilson Presidential Library, Virginia Holocaust Museum, and the National D-Day Memorial. I gathered all registrations, crafted all name tags and informational packets, and made sure the event ran smoothly. The educational programs varied by topic but consisted of a guest speaker, such as former Vietnam Prisoner of War Paul Galanti, and a light reception. With these events, I have worked with civic and military organizations such as the Military Order of the World Wars, American Legion, Daughters of the American Revolution, Veterans of Foreign Wars, Marine Corps League and the Navy League. I assisted with the annual TGA 5k – They Gave All in which I was responsible for all registrations, all Memorial flag sponsorships, packet pick-up, and close to 100 volunteers.
