Where do you work?
I work at Anthropologie in the Philadelphia Navy Yard as an assistant web producer. This is a brand new job, and I was at Apple for the last three years.
What are your hobbies?
I live in Fitler Square, so I take full advantage of the fantastic Schuylkyll River trail. I spend my free time outdoors as much as possible - running, walking, or biking on the trail on beautiful days. I also love reading, yoga, and good food and good beer. The Philly food scene is a national treasure!
How often do you volunteer?
Not as often as I’d like!
What motivated you to come to the cleanup?
One Sunday, my boyfriend and I stopped into the new UBB store in Old City, drawn to the aesthetic of the small business and store front. Coincidentally, the store had just opened the day prior. Brian and his wife were super friendly and excited about their mission and invited us to the cleanup that Tuesday. I was inspired by their passion for UBB and the cleanups. I’ve cleaned up neighborhood roadways in the past with my dad, and it’s both rewarding and entertaining. (Some of the things you find on the side of the road… I don’t know what people are thinking!) Now that I live in the city, I thought what a perfect opportunity to give back and clean up.
