Sophie is our development manager, incredible friend, and an extremely dedicated, loyal, and hard- working staff member!
My favorite thing about East Tennessee is being so close to the mountains and lakes, but still in a metropolitan hub with a rich culture and lots to do.
I think just that U2 album that everyone has! I usually just stream music and listen to Lofi Hip Hop Radio at work, Nicki Minaj for my work outs, and Coffeehouse radio at home.
Three cats, all rescued as strays. Jack, Phoebe, and Ivy.
I spent a semester in Ireland with my sister and had an amazing experience. We got to pop over for some weekend trips in Paris and Barcelona, too!
I love hiking and yoga. My husband and I take my parents’ dog on a hike almost every nice weekend and I just dedicated a spare room in my house to my daily yoga practice.
I love reading, but you can’t beat binge-watching a good show on Netflix with your favorite people.
Tall almond milk latte.
I love telling Young-Williams’ story to granters and donors. Comparing my proposals year over year, it’s so encouraging to see how much our programs are evolving and that they are having a huge impact on animal homelessness in Knoxville.
I’d worked for several area non-profits before I came here and was a foster parent for YWAC for 3 years when the perfect opportunity opened up. I knew I couldn’t pass up the chance to get paid to do what I love!
I hope I can help grow the financial contributions to our organization through grants and donations, because the support of our community is the only way we’ve been able to save so many lives!
