LAURA BACKE //
// LOVE LETTER BUNDLE COORDINATOR
Laura began writing letters at age 8 when her family moved 600+ miles from the mid-west to the beautiful mountains of North Carolina and continues to write letters today. By day, she can be found creating adventures all over town with children as a nanny. By night, she is MLL's bundle coordinator - knee deep in spreadsheets, emails, requests for love letters and stories of how letters have impacted lives.
ELizabeth JAGUS //
// SOCIAL MEDIA COORDINATOR
Elizabeth discovered MLL at a time of brokenness and loves that she has found herself on the other side of the struggle. She can be found hanging with elementary schoolers as a student teacher between 7am and 3pm. All other hours of the day she is mostly likely cuddling golden doodles, reading the same book for the twelfth time, and drinking hot tea. She is working on pushing the boundaries of her comfort zone and hiking to new heights in the North Georgia mountains. Big believer in kindness, brunch, and reaching 10,000 Fitbit steps.
SARA BRINK //
// CAMPUS CURSIVE COORDINATOR
Sara Brink is an avid writer, a voracious reader, and a serious cat lover. She helped design and implement the Campus Cursive program back in 2012 after graduating from Hofstra University. When she's not writing love letters, she's baking and decorating cookies and cakes. You can probably find her slugging coffee and dancing to Taylor Swift.
SHARON RHODES //
// CAMPUS CURSIVE COORDINATOR
Sharon is a writer, editor and vivid dreamer. She loves OneRepublic, hiking and stories behind tattoos. She hopes to visit all 50 U.S. states in her lifetime (only 33 left)! Above all, Sharon prefers backing into parking spaces and eating large quantities of chips & guac.
CLAIRE TAYLOR //
// ASSISTANT TO HB.
Claire is an avid lover of sharpie pens, motivational quotes, and Serial Podcasts. Her love of story telling has led her to study at the Missouri School of Journalism. She is a college student by day, a group fitness instructor by night, and a college basketball junkie in March. Promotor of Saturday walks, sappy movies, and self-worth.
NICOLE SHEPARD //
// TEAM LEADER
Nicole has an old soul, an obsession for stationery and a deep love for the written word. She earns her living as a graphic designer, but lives her life as an encourager and comedian. Team building and mentoring are her jam. Words of affirmation are literally her love language which gives her a deeply rooted passion for MLL. When she's not writing love letters, she's probably reading, singing show tunes or dreaming about New York City.
KALA GRAGE //
// CAMPUS CURSIVE INTERN
Kala joined the MLL team in Spring 2016. She loves hot dish, her husband, days spent on the lake and her dog, Wednesday. Don't confuse her with the typical Minnesota girl, she'll always take a glass of peach iced tea. When she's not writing, she's eating, and when she's too busy for either of those, it's because she's delivering flowers for her favorite florist. Gratitude is her favorite attitude and she doesn't believe in silly questions. Ask her how you can get involved with More Love Letters!
BELLA BONANNO //
// LOVE LETTER BUNDLE INTERN
Bella is an encourager and story-teller. Black coffee, magnolias, and grace are her love languages. While her heart is rooted in the mountains of Oregon, Bella can also sometimes be found penning love letters in France and the Netherlands. She’s Laura’s sidekick, and spends many a night reading the heartrending and gutsy stories of human beings for MLL.
