Office & Events Manager
Timothy J. Sheldon, Office & Events Manager
Tim began working for Albany Barn Inc. as an AmeriCorps VISTA Member in November 2018, and originally hails from Philadelphia, PA. After graduating in 2018 with a degree in International Relations, Environmental Studies, and Mandarin Chinese from Calvin University in Grand Rapids, MI, Tim dove into an internship with the youth program at a church in the Philadelphia area. It was during this internship that Tim felt himself called to do a volunteer service year in America's cities with AmeriCorps. This is what brought him to Schenectady and the Electric City Barn taking over marketing and community engagement at the Barn, which eventually lead to a full time position after AmeriCorps as the Office Manager for the Electric City Barn and the Events Coordinator for both the Electric City Barn and Albany Barn locations.
