MaeLynn was born and raised in Asheville, NC, and moved to Charlotte in 2017 to attend school at UNC Charlotte. She graduated in May of this year with a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science.
She began her studies with the goal in mind of wanting to help others in whatever capacity possible. In 2020, she found a role that fit this goal: Communications Assistant with the Town of Cornelius.
MaeLynn loves the hands-on nature of the job. In her role, she's able to make decisions about what information needs to be shared, the best ways to share it, and is able to help answer questions that residents may have.
Her favorite part of the job? Writing this newsletter. She enjoys keeping residents in the know and is dedicated to not breaking the third-person. The newsletters are also a great way for her to get to know residents through interviews, learn about the history of the Town, and to present relevant information on week-to-week goings-on.
When MaeLynn is not working, she enjoys volunteering with animals and staying active in the great outdoors. She's also looking forward to a long and fruitful career in Public Administration.
