Neriangela (Neddy) joined Morten Group in 2017 as their administrative intern during her last semester with the Associated Colleges of the Midwest (ACM) Chicago Program. She now joins us in 2018 as a Project Assistant, providing administrative support to projects and assistance to proposals, plans, and reports.
Before joining Morten Group, Neddy spent time as a physical education teacher, coach and administrative assistant with Chicago’s We Got Game, an outsourcing youth sports company, and currently works as a personal trainer and fitness instructor. Neddy holds a BA in Business Administration and Wellness Administration from Monmouth College. While in college, she found her passion for work encompassing diversity, equity and inclusion and founded People of Change, an advocacy group which partners with local schools to talk about key concepts around community engagement, intersectionality and youth development.
We asked Neddy, “What is the best gift you have ever given?” She said, “I’m not sure if it was the best gift, but it was the most fun to make; a 20 minute video for my niece’s first birthday celebration.”
