Hillary Goodall just joined our staff team in June as our new communications coordinator and administrative assistant. As you have probably heard, our wonderful Becky Keller is leaving for Yale in August. Hillary has come on board to support our capital campaign, to grow our communication platform, and to assist our team with all of the administrative tasks that come up for a vibrant church like Restoration.
I wanted to give her a chance to introduce herself. So, here she is…
And here are a few things you should know about her… Hillary about Hillary:
My name is Hillary Goodall and I am a Nashville, Tennessee native and a Goodall family enthusiast! When I left home to attend Furman University in Greenville, SC my mom’s motto was “just a plane ride away!” So with my family’s support, the decision to move up “north” after college was an easy one. I love how Northern Virginia merges small town life with city living, and I take advantage of every cultural adventure I can. For the past nine months, I have been a Fellow at The Falls Church Anglican where I took seminary classes, worked on the Hill (best office ever), lived with a family from the church, and learned all about living a seamless life of faith. I fell so in love with the area and the people that I decided to stick around.
In college I studied Sociology and Religion with the intention of going into full-time vocational ministry, until I spent a summer working in Nashville doing online communications, sales and marketing. I found that I loved using my administrative skills (aka super “Type A-ness”) and seeing God’s desire for all realms of work to be meaningful. After hearing endless glowing reviews about Restoration and what God is doing, I am thrilled to have the opportunity to work here. Currently, I am the staff hub for all things related to the building campaign, and will transition into an Administrative and Communications role in the Fall.
In my free time I love playing golf (anyone know of any less expensive courses around here?), reading (currently: Wendell Berry), being outdoors, eating the entire bread basket at Le Pain Quotidian, and attempting a hobby in photography.
Please join me in welcoming Hillary to our team!
