Scarlett Moffatt, Community Coordinator

Scarlett Moffat

Scarlett was born and raised in the Midwest and grew up surrounded by a menagerie of animals. Along with dogs, cats and parakeets, the family had room for what appeared to be preparation for the Ark. There were Spider monkeys, a Chimpanzee, several parrots, macaws, a raccoon, and an armadillo. When she had children of her own the list grew to include hedgehogs, bugs, snakes and ducks. The family moved to Maryland a dozen years ago with three cats, a Basset Hound and three Italian Greyhounds that were adopted as litter mates.

Here at AWL, Scarlett is building our volunteer program and strengthening relationships with youth, faith, and veteran and other community organizations.
