Get to Know Meaghan
What drives you each day at the Joe Andruzzi Foundation?
The direct impact that JAF has on a family/grant recipient is so motivating and it lifts you up to try harder and be the best you can be. When a family in my community, or a friend’s neighborhood, can pay their bills because JAF was there…that is incredibly rewarding.
What is your favorite thing about working for the Joe Andruzzi Foundation?
The supporters who give their time, talent, and treasure to JAF are incredibly loyal. They show up over and over again, and it’s inspiring and heartwarming. They make me want to come to work every day and make a difference because they’re continually showing up for our patients, so I will too.
What’s a “fun fact” about yourself that others may be surprised to learn?
I love to bake and I’m teaching myself how to decorate cakes.
