ALI HERMETZ

Communications/Social Media Specialist VISTA

Ali is from Greenville, South Carolina. She developed a passion for re-entry work during college when she participated in a program called the Furman Prison Education Partnership. Through FPEP, Ali met many currently and formerly incarcerated people and learned their stories. Because of her experiences at Furman, Ali decided that she wanted to pursue work related to reentry after graduation, which led her to apply for an AmeriCorps VISTA position with Jobs of Hope. Ali’s work this year will focus on building Jobs of Hope’s capacity to serve our community.
