Mariah is the Executive Assistant at Greenville Housing Fund, supporting the team in operations and special projects to further the reach of affordable housing efforts in the Greenville area.
She came to GHF in November of 2021 after working on a multi-statewide, multimillion-dollar research study aimed at reducing recidivism through strengthening the well-being and empowerment of formerly incarcerated individuals. Prior to that, Mariah managed a medical office with a focus on seamless operations and forging constructive relationships with the community. She also worked with Housing and Neighborhood Services in Rock Hill, South Carolina, on affordable housing endeavors including collaboration on grant applications, the design and implementation of grant-funded programs, and development of organizational and neighborhood relationships.
Her drive stems from her love of different cultures and languages, fueling her passion for promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion. Her goal is for every person to have the opportunity to participate in and enjoy beautiful and prosperous communities while feeling valued, supported, and safe.
She holds her B.S. in Anthropology from College of Charleston’s Honors College and her Master of Social Work from Winthrop University. In her spare time, she can be found reading, planning her next trip abroad, or attending a cultural event.
