GREENVILLE, S.C. – Rebuild Upstate has brought on Rose Davis to be its new Development Specialist.

In 2017, Davis graduated from Clemson University with a degree in communications and nonprofit leadership. Following graduation, Davis served nearly five years as the Resource Development Manager at Pickens County Habitat for Humanity. As Resource Development manager, Davis was the fundraiser, volunteer coordinator and communications specialist on staff.

“I wore many hats,” said Davis. “That position helped to prepare me for my role as Development Specialist at Rebuild Upstate because I learned the many creative ways to conduct outreach in the community as well as secure gifts to further the mission of serving low-income populations.”
