Arianna joined HeadCount thanks to Melanie Marcou’s well applied peer pressure. After completing her degree in Earth Science at UC Santa Cruz, she said what the heck, and followed her boyfriend into the wilds of West Virginia. Drawn to HeadCount by her love of live music and democracy, she signed up as Morgantown’s team leader with a desire to get involved in her new community.
A self-described volunteering junkie, Arianna has lots of experience working for free. She lived in New Hampshire’s backcountry for 4 months building trails with the Student Conservation Association, served as an Americorps VISTA for a year in Philadelphia, and founded her own volunteer-based tutoring program. Arianna currently works for West Virginia University.
