Apparo Team Member
Cerys joined Apparo as the Development Associate in April 2020. She is excited to be joining an inspiring group of individuals working toward a common vision of enabling Charlotte area nonprofits to increase community impact.
In May 2017, Cerys graduated from the UNC-Chapel Hill with a double major in Political Science and Peace, War and Defense and a minor in French. Originally from the United Kingdom, she has developed a passion for living amongst and learning about different cultures. This passion drove her to begin her career by serving as a Peace Corps education volunteer in Namibia, Southern Africa. During her two-year service, she organized and facilitated a variety of social impact projects including, youth development camps and clubs, water infrastructure projects, professional development workshops, and teaching English as a second language.
In her spare time, Cerys loves to take advantage of the beautiful North Carolina climate by spending time with family and friends outdoors at the lake, a local brewery, or on a long walk in the woods.
