Gavin is currently directing Statewide initiatives as the Tennessee Regional State Manager. Gavin works to build our SADD network across the Volunteer State, developing chapters, mentoring chapter advisors, creating new partnerships, and encouraging youth across the State to take on greater leadership roles in peer-to-peer prevention education. Before joining SADD in 2020, Gavin worked seven years with local Boys & Girls Clubs in Wisconsin, Missouri, Texas, Alabama, & Tennessee. He served as a Club Director in many of those organizations to lead the Clubhouses in making a positive impact in the lives of the youth that we served. In his free time, he volunteers with the Special Olympics of Tennessee to serve on their Young Professional Board to help further the impact of that organization’s mission to serve athletes with disabilities. Gavin loves to make fun TikToks for SADD socials or for his own fun. He also loves to hang out with his black lab, watch all sports & lastly research what the stock market is doing on a day-to-day basis.
