Marybeth, "MB", is beyond excited about the opportunity to step into the Program Director shoes. MB heard about BoMF at a race while in grad school pursuing her Masters in Social Work and knew she had to get involved. Since then, she has been a dedicated volunteer and previous Team Leader with her beloved Team CP. She cannot truly express her amazement that there is a job out there which includes her passion for running while simultaneously using her MSW degree.
Previously, MB came from case management with The United Way Family Stability Program and Project JumpStart, both located in Baltimore City. Marybeth is originally from the Boston area but likes to say she is now living in the "South" where the weather is certainly warmer.
Marybeth is a Licensed Graduate of Social Work (LGSW) and holds her Masters of Social Work from University of Maryland.
Sydney Van Horn
Development and Marketing Coordinator
Sydney joins the Back on My Feet team as Baltimore's Development and Marketing Coordinator. She is over the moon about her new role and ready to unite her love for Baltimore with her passion for community-driven fitness. Sydney first got involved two years ago while commuting to from DC for November Project Baltimore, and she is excited to work for such a strong and inspiring mission. Previously, Sydney worked at the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation planning 24-hour dance marathon events in the fight against pediatric HIV/AIDS. She also planned weddings on the side, so she loves a good excel timeline.
Sydney graduated from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) with a bachelor's degree in Communication Studies, and a minor in Spanish Language & Literature.
Adam is new to the Back on My Feet Baltimore team. He is the Program Coordinator, and is working with BoMF as a Jesuit Volunteer for the 2015-2016 year. He is originally from San Diego, California, and will be attempting to adjust to the strange phenomenon known as "four seasons." While he is just beginning his time on staff, he is very excited to jump in and work with the amazing group of people that make up BoMF. Adam is a swimmer by practice, rather than a runner, but is nevertheless excited to join the team and start a new challenging adventure in Baltimore.
"The things in life that are the hardest to complete are often the most rewarding and worthwhile. Realizing that you can reach that goal that you have worked so hard for gives you a profound pride in yourself and your accomplishments, that will push you to even greater heights, so long as you keep working hard."
Adam graduated from Santa Clara University with a Bachelor's of Science in Public Health Science and Biology, with an emphasis in Biomedical Sciences.
