This marks Joe’s ninth year living in Philadelphia, but he balances that with 18 years of small-town charm. In that way, Philly is really the perfect place for him—big in size, but plenty of Brotherly Love™. He advocates for staying active, always carrying Field Notes, and constantly listening to audiobooks or podcasts.
Allora came to Philadelphia to attend Temple University 9 years ago, fell in love with the city, and never left. She currently resides in Fishtown and works in the Navy Yard.

Jenna grew up on a small farm in Missouri and made it to Philly three years ago by way of Boston. She lives in Point Breeze and spends innumerable hours posted up at Ultimo on Mifflin, savoring new roasts and contemplating her next project.

Ramo attended Temple University and has lived in 8 different locations in his 10 years in Philadelphia. He currently resides in the Graduate Hospital area, but it's safe to say, he is constantly on the move and trying to absorb as much of Philly as possible! Besides spending his time on the marketing team at JPMorgan Chase, he spends most of his free time exploring Philly and building relationships, and he's always down for a bite to eat! Ramo cannot go a day without being active, whether at the gym or being involved in his community—he is constantly on the go!
After attending Villanova, Erin decided to stay in the area and absolutely fell in love with Philadelphia.

She spends most of her time crunching numbers as an Analyst at Fishtown Analytics out of WeWork in Center City. In her free time, Erin loves a good cheese plate, cooking, yoga, exploring new Philly restaurants and finding fun bars to hang out after Volunteering Untapped events!
Dan grew up in the suburbs of Philadelphia, moved to the city to attend Temple University, and decided to stay here after graduating in 2014 with a degree in Accounting with a minor in Finance. He spends his time practicing yoga, hiking, and enjoying free time with friends. He hiked the Appalachian Trail from Georgia to Maine after graduating college, and has since become immersed in the world of Yoga. He is a certified instructor registered with the Yoga Alliance.
Devon left quiet Lancaster County in 2008 for new and exciting adventures in Philadelphia where she attended Temple University for 6 whole years (*gasp*). She works at a Speech-Language Pathologist at a non-profit private school for children with special needs. The energy of the city motivated her to stay in Philly, despite the 45 minute work commute to the suburbs. You can find Devon walking her two dogs and eating her way around Northern Liberties, coffee in hand. Devon believes that the only way to truly know a city is to run through it; so you can often catch her in sneakers all over Philly.
