A Note From A New Momma

By Jocelyn Rhodes on July 29, 2021

I have been RMA’s Administrative Coordinator since October 2019.  After working in the events industry, it has been absolutely amazing being able to come back to outdoor recreation where my passions truly lie.  Although I had some experience teaching adaptive skiing, this still has been a massive learning curve for me.

Hands down the best thing about working for RMA is the people.  Jamie and Vick have done an amazing job choosing lead staff for their personality and passion.  Kim, who hires our more casual and seasonal staff, has managed to pick winners every season.  Every single employee is so excited to build a more inclusive mountain sport and recreation community and I feel so lucky to be a part of this team!

On top of working with staff, part of my role is connecting with volunteers.  There are so many incredible folks who donate their time to RMA, I could write pages and pages of thanks yous and shout outs.  The humans who come out and support our programs are some of the kindest, most intelligent and thoughtful, generally wonderful people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting.

As of July 12th, I have been on maternity leave as I wait to welcome my first child into this world.  I am incredibly excited (and a little terrified) for this new adventure in my life.  I am so grateful for my time at RMA so far, and I am excited to come back to this wonderful organization in a year.
