After moving to Pittsburgh in 2006, Quinn spent several years mentoring college students. Prior to joining GBA, she oversaw daily maintenance operations in the Facilities Department at Dollar Bank and successfully implemented several sustainability efforts, including recycling programs and paperless reporting. Quinn also served on the advisory board of Garfield Community Farm, an urban farm that seeks to provide fresh produce and educational opportunities to neighbors in the community. There she developed her desire to have a positive impact on spaces used by everyone, particularly those living in disadvantaged neighborhoods.
Quinn’s bachelor’s degree from Florida Atlantic University is a double major in Interdisciplinary Arts and Humanities and English, with a concentration in writing and rhetoric. Her minor is in Communication. Her favorite book from college is Dara Horn’s “In the Image” and she once listened to the unabridged audio book version of “Moby Dick” – all 24 hours of it.
