Ophelia Lenz joined the Hospice of the Piedmont Development team in 2024. Before joining Hospice of the Piedmont, Ms. Lenz began her career as a photojournalist for newspapers in North Carolina and Pennsylvania. For the last 11 years, she has been supporting educational travel as Director of Account Management at WorldStrides. After losing her father in 2022 to a long battle with cancer, she was drawn to the important work that Hospice of the Piedmont does to support patients, their caregivers, and families in their time of need. As part of the Development team, Ms. Lenz is honored to help ensure the continuation and growth of the vital services that generous community philanthropy makes possible. Ms. Lenz lives in Charlottesville and can be found tilling the soil at her community garden plot, taking the train to Princeton to visit her daughter Lucy, or cheering her son Max along at his cross-country meets.
