Editor’s Note: We are so excited to welcome Ingrid Schmeling as the newest team member in Children’s Volunteer Services! Read on for Ingrid’s “hello” message!
“Hello, all! My name is Ingrid Schmeling, and I could not be more excited about becoming a Volunteer Coordinator in the Volunteer Services Department, Minneapolis Campus. I am a former Children’s volunteer (yahoo!) and University of St. Thomas graduate, with a double major in Psychology and Spanish. I have spent the past 2 ½ years working as an Admissions Coordinator for Children’s at their Roseville Rehabilitation Site.
A bit more about me: I am a huge animal lover who enjoys movies, music, travel, good food, and spending time with friends and family. If you ever need a pet sitter, I am the gal to ask! I had the privilege of studying abroad in Rome (as a Spanish major…whoops!) in college, and have had a passion for fashion and travel ever since! I may love food, but am not the greatest chef…I do make a MEAN mac n’ cheese, though (straight from the Kraft box, of course). That is me in a nutshell…to learn more, feel free to ask. I look forward to meeting all of the amazing volunteers and staff at Children’s!”
WELCOME, Ingrid! We’re so happy to have you join Volunteer Services!
