Tabitha Echols - Volunteer Coordinator
Tabitha Echols believes that all people have the capacity to lead, and that leadership should be diverse. That’s what convinced her to apply to the Public Allies Program at Americorps. Officially accepted into the program, Tabby now serves as a volunteer and outreach coordinator for The LGBT Center of SE Wisconsin. In this role, she manages community outreach, provides assistance to the Center’s volunteer community, and supports Center events.
While she was working toward her undergraduate degree at the University of Wisconsin Parkside, Tabitha worked in the Office of University Development and Alumni Relations, where she helped to plan the University’s 50th Anniversary celebration and its 50th Anniversary Commencement exercises. Tabitha also served in a number of leadership roles for the Black Student Union, including as treasurer, vice president, and most recently as president of the organization. As a longtime volunteer for Habitat for Humanity, Tabby oversaw marketing for the campus community, and helped to build homes in Louisiana, Alabama, and Florida. Tabitha’s other leadership roles included working in the Office of Multicultural Student Affairs as a Peer Advisor where she found her passion for one day continuing student affairs.
Tabby holds a Bachelor of Arts in Communication with a Minor in Studio Art & Public Relations from the University of Wisconsin Parkside. She currently resides in Racine, WI.
