Vice President:
Jen McLaughlin has lived in Riverside for over two decades. She works for the Maryland State Board of Elections, and is a Board Member of the Baltimore Museum of Industry.  Some of Jen’s favorite things in Riverside include the amazing street trees on her block, watching sailboats from the BMI pavilion, the sounds of trains and cruise ships, and the ever-growing population of kids and dogs in the neighborhood.

Rebecca Charlton has been active in the community prior to joining the RNA board and serving as Secretary. Previously, she was instrumental in obtaining grants for pool improvements, RNA’s Placemaking initiative, and takes an active role in other neighborhood initiatives.

Committee Chairs:

Friends of Riverside Park & Street Trees
Jackson Fisher is paid by the USDA to grow plants under different conditions. Sometimes they grow well. Sometimes they die. He coordinates activities for the Friends of Riverside Park, works on greening projects in the neighborhood, helps with the street trees, and schedules community dumpsters for the neighborhood clean up events. Jackson can also answer most questions related to Baltimore City Rec and Park activities in the neighborhood and Riverside Park. Working on a community project? Email Jackson to borrow hand tools for your individual or group project: His favorite thing in the neighborhood is Christmas lights and snowstorms.

Website & Social Media
Rachel Wagner is a local business owner and mother of two who connects moms through fitness and social activities. She threw herself at RNA just before transitioning to her life as a stay at home mom in 2013, and used her mediocre web design skills to spruce up the existing site and boost RNA’s social media presence. Rachel enjoys the small town feel of life on the peninsula and the unexpected awesomeness of raising a family here.
