We would like to introduce our new Program Coordinator, Rachel Woods! Many of you will be talking with her in the future, if you have not already. Here is a little bit of information about her:
Hometown: Bowling Green, MO & Lee’s Summit, MO- split between the two growing up. I currently live in Lee’s Summit.
Hobbies: I enjoy running and working out. I ran my first 10K this summer, it was pouring rain and all hills. It gave me a huge sense of pride to cross that finish line! I also enjoy doing little craft projects and DIY home improvement. I learned to arm knit earlier this year and knitted myself an infinity scarf. My boyfriend and I are working on renovating the downstairs bathroom.
Fun Fact: I met my boyfriend in Riviera Maya, Cancun, Mexico. We were there on separate vacations staying at the same resort. After meeting in the nail salon (getting complimentary pedis) we hit it off and turns out we grew up in the same town and went to the same high school (6 years apart)!! We decided it had to be fate. We now live together with his daughter, Veronica, and just celebrated our 4 year anniversary.
Favorite part of the job so far: Everyone in the office is fantastic, and I enjoy meeting and interacting with all the Ambassadors from all over the country. I’m learning a lot about US geography!
We are very happy to welcome Rachel to the VPR team!
