Board of Directors
Hospitality House of Charlotte
Angie graduated with her B.S. in Business Economics from Florida A&M University in 1991. She began her career in banking but departed from that to start a family. During the work hiatus, Angie started a preschool mom’s group at her church, ran various school committees, and served as PTA President at her children’s elementary and middle school. After several corporate moves, a job opportunity for her husband, Howard, brought the family of five from Cleveland, OH to Charlotte, NC.
She began her non-profit career in 2006 when she became the Administrative Assistant at Hospitality House of Charlotte. Angie was quickly promoted to Business Manager and assisted HHOC through the capital campaign, building, and relocation to the current facility. Upon move-in, Angie added operational policies and procedures and managed facility operations. In 2016, she was promoted to Finance Director.
Angie has been with HHOC through management changes and has served twice in the Interim Director role. Her most recent period as Interim Executive Director concluded with her appointment to the Executive Director job. To ensure Angie is operating at the top of her profession, she earned her Professional Fundraising Certification at Boston University in 2021 to help HHOC secure significant financial support for years to come. To date, Angie has served Hospitality House for more than sixteen years.
Dedicated to community service, in 2016, Angie and her husband seeded funding for The Green & White Scholarship at Ohio University. That fund has since become The Emergency Microgrant Fund, which has grown to over $300,000, and ensures that a financial crisis during a full-time student’s tenure will not derail degree acquisition. In Charlotte, Angie was a Friedland Foundation mentor. The Foundation’s fund instills hope of a college education in middle-school students burdened with socioeconomic disadvantages. Angie mentored a middle-school student through high school, and the young lady is now a recent college graduate. Angie currently serves on the Finance Committee of the Women’s Impact Fund (a collective giving circle), as chair of the Governance Committee on the Apparo Board of Directors, and as co-chair of the Healthcare Hospitality Network’s Advocacy & Awareness Committee.
When Angie is not working, you may find her planning international vacations, laughing with family and friends, catching a great podcast, or reading.
