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 has been the Executive Director since October 2021 and 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!
Kelley was raised on the move as a military brat which allowed her to grow up in the US, Europe, and Middle East. She has a Bachelor's of Science Degree from Iowa State University and spent two decades in management in the transportation industry before making a switch to retail sales. Her support of non-profit work plus her love of St. John brought her to Friends in 2022. Kelley enjoys reading, watching movies, hiking, and anything on the water!
Originally from Russia, Tatiana lived in seven states, before arriving on St. John in 2018. She has extensive retail and project management experience and revels in our island's outdoor lifestyle. She loves being out on the water, hiking and gardening and movies based on true stories.
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 coordinates our School Kids In the Park (SKIP) program facilitating the use of the park as an outdoor classroom. 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!
