All About Us: Holly Lewis

All About Us is exactly the same as the Volunteer Spotlight, but with a focus on the Board of Directors and staff.  Many of you know us very well, but some of you only know us by name or title.  We love to get out in the community–and in the Middlesex Fells!–to meet you all in person.  But if we haven’t met you personally yet, or if you’d like some fun background, enjoy the profiles.

Introducing new board member Holly Lewis:

Name: Holly Lewis

Town: Melrose

Profession: Banker

Involved Since: 2017

Holly Tells Us:

“One touch of nature makes the whole world kin.” – William Shakespeare

The Fells provide a stark contrast between man’s innovation and nature’s beauty. This contrast can be experienced on my favorite hike, the Skyline Trail, as you walk through the woods, mount boulders, and see the city in the distance. I am happiest when I am surrounded by trees, listening to the birds. Wilderness helps us understand ourselves, and gives us a perspective bigger than our individual, every-day problems. As a new transplant to the Northeast, I am grateful for the opportunity to volunteer with the Friends of the Fells. The Fells provide a way to rejuvenate the spirit and feel connected to nature. As a volunteer, I aim to pick up litter once a week. I look forward to continuing my exploration of the Fells and experiencing the change of the seasons.

Are you interested in a leadership role or perhaps future employment with The Friends of the Fells?  Contact us at Women, people of color, individuals with disabilities, and veterans are especially encouraged.
