Director of Programs and Pro Bono Partnerships
Lavonne is the director of programs and pro bono partnerships with Apparo. Lavonne brings over 15 years of financial services and project management experience to her work empowering nonprofits in the Charlotte community.
She is committed to helping nonprofits realize transformational change through Apparo's technology programs. These programs include Community Impact Projects, Epic, Award Grants and Nonprofit Tech Education programs (and just like technology, who knows what new program or innovation could pop up next). Apparo’s programs connect volunteers to skills based volunteer opportunities to impact over 100 nonprofits in the Charlotte area each year. She loves the magic of super smart people, big hearts, the power of technology, and lots of passion coming together to help propel the work of nonprofits forward.
Lavonne has a BS in finance from Liberty University. She is married with three children. In her spare time, she loves getting lost in a good book, being next to the ocean, and looking for her next treasure in an antique mall. More than likely though, you will find her on a soccer field, volunteering with her church or sharing a laugh with her family and friends. She is a native of the Hershey, PA area and has strong opinions about chocolate but now calls Charlotte home.
