New Staff Members Join the VBA
Wednesday, June 24, 2015
The VBA staff welcomed two members in June. Elizabeth Foskey is events/division coordinator and Lizzy Servito is membership coordinator.
Elizabeth Foskey, previously an administrative assistant with Church World Service in Richmond, formerly worked as an assistant event planner for Sterling Events in Williamsburg, and in conference services at the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation. The latter two roles involved event logistics and hospitality experience, including client consultation and request fulfillment. She also has worked as a youth leader at various churches, coordinating activities and trips, and as an associate coordinator for Operation Smith’s summer student conference. Elizabeth graduated from Lynchburg College in 2007 – where she played varsity field hockey for four years – with a major in philosophy and comparative world religions.

Lizzy Servito is a 2015 graduate of Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, where she earned a bachelor of fine arts degree in painting and printmaking. While attending school, she worked as a studio monitor in the Department of Painting & Printmaking, as a gallery intern at the 1708 Gallery, as an office assistant in the VCU Department of Art History and as an education intern at the Visual Arts Center of Richmond. Lizzy spent the summer of 2013 studying abroad in Peru. She also is co-director of Mist Gallery, where she curates monthly online exhibitions that showcase work by emerging artists from across the country.

The new hires followed the departure from the staff of Katie Heflin and Rachel Phillips. Heflin served as member coordinator since April 2013 and Phillips, hired in April 2011, as member/events assistant.
Along with these staff changes, recent hire Caitlin McKelway added events to her job title as section and committee coordinator.
Other continuing staff, in addition to executive director Yvonne C. McGhee and assistant executive director Brenda Dillard, are Anne P. Bryant, director of finance; Nancy Davis, staff assistant/administration; and Marilyn Shaw, communications coordinator.
