Senior Manager of Executive Operations
Rebecca graduated from UNC-Chapel Hill with a B.A. in Exercise and Sport Science and a minor in the Study of Christianity and Culture. After graduation, she served as a City Year AmeriCorps Member in Queens, New York. She worked in a fourth-grade classroom providing whole classroom support, small group tutoring, and after school programming to students in an under-resourced elementary school. Afterwards, she worked as a Monitoring, Evaluation, and Marketing Intern for Student Driven Solutions, a start-up NGO in Malawi that teaches financial literacy to secondary school girls. Through these experiences, she recognized the positive effect that caring, intentional adults can have on the lives of young people. Her passion for youth and education led her to join Heart in July 2017.
