Overview

I’m Rikki, the Campus757 Program Coordinator at the Hampton Roads Workforce Council. I initially came on as the Events and Programming Intern; my passion for Campus757 blossomed in that role, and I applied for and accepted this role. I grew up here in the 757, took a hiatus to Lynchburg, VA for undergrad, and studied internationally for a year before heading back to the region. Not too long after being back in the 757, I decided to go to school and receive my Master of Public Health at Old Dominion University (Go Monarchs!)! The opportunities in Hampton Roads are endless – you will always have a place here!

Hello! My name is Kirstin DeCroix and I am the Communication Coordinator. I just recently graduated Old Dominion University where I studied communication and political science. When I graduated, I knew I wanted to do public relations but that I also wanted to be working within the community which is why this position was such a perfect fit for me. Being that I did just recently graduate, I know that it can be hard to find the resources needed to be successful after college and that is why I am so passionate about the work that Campus757 does.

Hi, I’m Halle and I’m the Content Creation Intern at Campus757! I originally moved to Norfolk to attend college at ODU but I’m happy to say the 757 is now a place I call home. I love to write, edit, and create, which is why I am currently working towards a degree in cinema and tv production. The 757 has been a great place for me to explore the area, find the best photo spots, and try new breakfast places. There is something for everyone here and that’s what I love about it the most!

Overview

Greetings, and thank you for visiting Campus757. I’m Whitney, the Sr. Director of Talent for the Hampton Roads Workforce Council. I’m pleased to say that Campus757 was the first true talent initiative launched in this new division of the Council. Prior to my tenure here, I was a longtime HRWC Board member while creating jobs for people with disabilities at VersAbility Resources in Hampton. The 757 has so many assets, both natural and people-driven, and we hope to be the conduit for college students and anyone else to soak them all in for many years to come.
