Welcome Kelsey Harrington to Get2KnowNoke this week. Kelsey is fairly new to the region, but has found plenty of ways to stay connected as a young professional in the Roanoke Region.
She works for the non-profit Sexual Assault Response and Awareness, Inc., and plays soccer, bikes, and hikes. She has three dogs with her partner – be on the lookout for a cute fur-baby photo – and enjoys hitting new places and trying new things.
Tweeting from her personal account, @kharrington6, Kelsey highlights an active and busy lifestyle, balancing homeownership, pets, and busy schedules (things almost anyone can relate to). Here’s her bio: Midwest transplant living in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains! Tweets about: #soccer #socialjustice #yp #fem2 #community
Here are a couple more facts about Kelsey.
- She loves to engage in community conversation. “I consider myself an activist who cares deeply about creating an inclusive Roanoke for all people. … I feel so lucky to live here!”
- She’s got too many favorite places in the region to list them all, but here are a few: “I would say I love hopping around between the awesome breweries in our area. Between parkway, Soaring Ridge, and Big Lick, there is always a good time to be had. I love that I can walk around downtown and always see a friendly face.”
