Hello! Nice to meet you.
Tonia Lovejoy happily joined the Friends in 2016 as Director of Development bringing with her a wealth of experience in nonprofit business development. She is dedicated to growing Friends’ endeavors on St. John, and fostering the next generation of conservationists! Tonia's introduction to St. John and the park was from the vantage of the sea aboard a sailing vessel and she can still be found on the water whenever possible!
Taylor moved to Saint John in 2017, where she started as a volunteer for Friends of the Park before being becoming the Volunteer Coordinator for the Trail Maintenance Program. Along with maintaining our trails and ruins, she has assisted in constructing and maintaining our native plant nursery, and aided with planting over 500 trees along our coastlines to help fight coastal erosion. She has a Bachelors of Arts degree in Political Science from Coastal Carolina University. Interning at Northeast Midwest Institute, a nonprofit in Washington D.C, she learned about environmental legislation. She enjoys hiking, volleyball and playing the ukulele!
