I am so pleased to welcome Holly Odgers on board at the Lake Hopatcong Foundation as our newest team member! Holly will serve as our managing director, alongside acting executive director Donna Macalle-Holly and development director Jennifer DeWitt. Holly will be helping to keep things moving while I am on leave, and she brings a wealth of experience and talent to the foundation. In addition to working for the Land Conservancy of New Jersey for 18 years, Holly has done consulting work for several local nonprofits, including the Musconetcong Watershed Association, and most recently has been working at Grow It Green in Morristown. In addition to having experience in marketing, communications, and office management, Holly has a great personality and will no doubt be a wonderful representative for the LHF and its mission. Please join me in welcoming Holly to the team!
As I get ready to begin my unpaid educational leave while getting my Master of Public Administration from New York University, I have amazing confidence that the LHF is in great hands. Nobody knows Lake Hopatcong better than Donna, who will certainly handle the helm with ease and will continue the incredible work she does managing our projects and grants. Jen will no doubt continue her excellent work and her bubbling personality will continue to shine through in the events and activities she plans. And I think Holly will fit into the team perfectly with her skill set and demeanor. (And I can’t leave out the fabulous Lauren Rossi, who continues her maternity leave and is a huge part of the LHF story and success.) I can’t wait to join back with the team after I graduate in 2018.
For now, thank you all for your support. Enjoy the home stretch of summertime!
