Aspire North Members Roll Up Their Sleeves for TART Trails’ Spring Work Bee

This past Saturday, April 24th, a group of Aspire North volunteers joined TART Trails for their Spring Work Bee. The group put in an amazing effort picking up litter from the thick brush along the Boardman Lake Trail and clearing the trail of dust and debris! Thank you to Aspire North members Kacey Anderson, Nicole Hulet, Erika Korndorfer, Nan Ray, and Karly Wentzloff for donating your time to support our non-profit partner, TART Trails. Also, Aspire North would like to extend a big thank you to TART Trails ambassadors Mike and Mary Foley and Chris Gladieux for leading the crew and for all the hard work they do!

Communications & Marketing Director

As the Communications and Marketing Director, I oversee all the messaging and the manner in which it's delivered to our members.  This includes managing our weekly newsletter, social media presence, the members-only Facebook group, and our MLS Talk listserv.  With a background in visual arts, design, photography, and videography, I also help to develop original graphics, advertisements, and photo and video content.  If you're at one of our many events and see someone walking around with a camera, that's me!  As the unofficial tech guru of the office, I also work with staff to research and implement new technology and/or processes to better serve our members and reach them where they live, something that has become more important since the time of COVID.
