What Gail does at the Foundation:
As our Director of Civic Engagement, Gail oversees the Volunteer Center Hub, ensuring high quality experiences for our community, nonprofit and donor partners. She also coordinates and facilitates the RVA Engage coalition, a civic engagement board working to improve volunteerism across the region. In addition to managing the HandsOn community database, Gail also develops programs that engage community members in learning about key issues that align to our regional priorities.
Gail loves working with individuals who desire to do good in the community. Through her role, she often sees the difficult problems facing the Richmond region, yet she feels inspired by the enthusiasm of volunteers who want to make a difference.
When Gail’s not working:
Gail’s favorite thing to do is spend time with her family and friends. She loves games of any kind, from board games to sports, and has earned the nickname “Auntie Game” with her many nieces and nephews. She also loves anything outside – gardening, playing sports, watching sports, walking, etc.! You can often find her watching her kids’ sporting events, on a tennis court or watching tennis.
