Meet Russ Rice

Russ Rice

For Russ Rice, answering the question, “Why do you come to work each day?” is easy. “People are the most important thing,” he says, “and when you’re lucky enough to find a job that lets you help people in significant ways, then you get to live out the old adage of ‘choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life.’” Russ joined the SERCAP team in 2002 as a grant writer, transitioned to Director of Regional Programs, and has been the Director of Planning & Development since 2011.
