Red-Vested Rockstar: Harper Skulley


Children’s Volunteer Services presents: Red-Vested Rockstar!

Meet Harper!

1.   Why she ROCKS!!

“My family has been involved with various volunteer work for as long as I can remember.  When I found out that I could volunteer at Children’s when I was fourteen, I was really excited because I didn’t think I’d be able to volunteer at a hospital until I was an adult. I love reading and all kinds of books, so working in the Hide-a-Way Library is an absolutely perfect fit.” Harper has given her time to Children’s since  May of 2011. She has such positive energy, and is always willing to help! She is a joy to work with, and we believe that she brightens the days of the patients and families that she works with!

 2.   Favorite thing to do outside of volunteering?

“I love ballet:  I have been dancing classical ballet for twelve years and regularly perform with Ballet Minnesota. I also enjoy baking and crafts; really, anything artsy.”

 3.   Do you have any kids or pets of your own?

 “My family has two bunnies named Mochi and Truffle.”

 4.   If you could create a new candy bar, what would be in it and what would you name it?

“I love French macaroons, so some sort of dark chocolate macaroon bar with a lavender chocolate ganache center. I probably call it a MegaMac Bar.”

 5.   Share a favorite volunteer experience or story:

“I don’t know if I have a favorite volunteer memory, because every time I’m at Children’s is so special and I get so much back. I get to share my love of reading with kids, and seeing kids happily reading a pile of books always brightens my day.”

Thank you, Harper, for all that you do!
