Rebekah McMahen grew up in rural, western New York, but has called Birmingham, Alabama home since 2008. She migrated to the sunny south to attend Samford University, where she received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Graphic Design. In 2015 Rebekah joined the Impact America team as an AmeriCorps Member, and now serves as Fiscal Officer.

What do you like to do for fun?

When work is over I like to get outside and enjoy one of Birmingham’s many wonderful parks. Whether it’s weekend hiking at Oak Mountain or an after-hours stroll around Railroad Park, there’s nothing like some fresh air and people watching to refresh one’s soul!

What is your favorite quote from a book, movie or song?

“…we’re too young to realize certain things are impossible. Which is why we will do them anyway.” — William Pitt, from Amazing Grace
