Sydney Van Horn
Development and Marketing Director
Sydney first joined the Back on My Feet team officially in 2016 as Baltimore's Development and Marketing Coordinator, and now is the Development and Marketing Director! She is over the moon about her role and ready to unite her love for Baltimore with her passion for community-driven fitness. Sydney first got involved two years ago first as a commuting volunteer, then as a BASH committee member. She is excited daily to work for such a strong and inspiring mission here in Charm City.
Sydney graduated from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA).
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.
Workforce Development Coordinator
Since her first circle with Back on My Feet over two and a half years ago, Zoe has embraced every facet of the organization with open arms. First as a volunteer then as a core member on Team SOBO, her dedication to BoMF’s mission and to her fellow runners grew with each mile. It is an absolute dream for her to be able to bring that passion to the role of Workforce Development Coordinator with the Baltimore chapter.
A Baltimore native, Zoe ventured out of Charm City to study Biology at the University of Delaware and spent several years living with her boyfriend (now, fiancé) in NYC…but something about Baltimore just kept pulling her back (most likely the steamed crabs!). All the while though, Zoe has taken great joy in volunteering with non-profit organizations focused on alleviating hunger and homelessness in their communities.
Alumni Services Coordinator
Matt is the newest member to the Back on My Feet Baltimore staff. Matt is a first in the Back on My Feet (BoMF) National community: previously a member of Team Helping Up Mission, Matt graduated as an alumnus of the BoMF program and now is hired by BoMF Baltimore - providing services to those who come after him. In the position of Alumni Services Coordinator, Matt will be connecting with other alumni of the program with services, resources, and community as they continue to accomplish their goals of moving into self-sufficient housing, full-time employment, and education.
The idea that he now works for an organization that gave so much to him - that combines running with providing services to men struggling with addiction and homelessness, couldn’t be a better fit. Everything has come full-circle for Matt on his road to recovery and feels blessed to have the opportunity to help men and women who are struggling with the same issues that he has had to work through.
Matt completed his degree in Human Services Administration from the University of Baltimore and is going back to school for his Master's.
