Mystik is an AmeriCorps volunteer working for the Health Alliance. A native to West Virginia, she was eager to find work in her home state after several years away. With experience in public policy analysis, research, and investigation, Mystik has a wide variety of skills to assist the Alliance in its many functions.
Raised on a farm in the Eastern Panhandle, Mystik grew up doing hay, working on cars, and playing outside. She attended Dartmouth College in New Hampshire where she studied Russian language and politics. After college, she lived in Maryland, California, and Illinois for a few years. Last year, she was visiting a friend in Lewisburg when the floods hit. As she volunteered with recovery efforts, she met Sally and a connection was made. Offered the opportunity to stay in West Virginia, she accepted and is now looking forward to making her home here.
