Executive Director

Nick Serfass

Got an idea? Give it to Nick - he’ll put it down, flip it, and reverse it, over and over again until it becomes a hit. Nick loves everything about association life - the entrepreneurial creativity, the event production, the media and storytelling, the collaborating and connecting, the community impact, and the chance to learn something new each day. Originally a practicing architect with Baskervill, he accidentally volunteered himself into a career change that led him through a regulatory agency, a college student organization, and today to RVATECH. Now, Nick works to drive the Council toward relentless forward progress. He is a Virginia Wahoo, Miami Hurricane, Auburn Tiger, and proud resident of the booming metropolis of Midlothian since 1988. His preferred programming language is Pascal.

  • Attempted seven 100-mile ultramarathons, completing four, once running continuously for over 40 hours

  • Amateur zoologist, lacrosse coach, and YouTube producer thanks to sons Gray & Jack

  • Follow him on Instagram (@nickserfass) and LinkedIn for frequent book reviews

Lindsay Money

Programs

Lindsay Money

Lindsay makes event planning and implementation look like a piece of cake. Since first joining the Council in 2013, she has strategized, organized, and executed over 314.159 programs and events. She later took a hiatus to chase the sun, and her sailor, down to Florida where she joined the Greater Pensacola Chamber. In 2018, they left their flips flops behind and couldn’t race back to RVA’s tech community fast enough. In her spare time, you can find her crafting bodacious charcuterie boards and epic fondant cakes, all while corralling her husband, baby girl, and 100lb Mastador at their home on the bay. We’re still finagling how to hire her for catering.

  • She’s a pro Mario Kart 64 racer – challenges always accepted.

  • She learned how to stilt walk and ride the unicycle as a kid. #circusgoals

  • If you’re ever looking for a skydiving buddy, she’s your girl.

Kate Earle

Marketing

Kate Earle

First things first, K8 is gr8. She’s a marketing and communications guru who set sail in 2016 from Christopher Newport University straight to the heart of RVA. Originally from Midlothian, she’s traded her suburbs in for city living and is a frequent visitor to VMFA happy hours and summer squirrels’ games. You can catch her posting, tweeting, and insta’ing all the amazing rvatech events to keep the community engaged! When she’s not designing websites, graphics, and gifs, she enjoys hiking and traveling with her little Aussie, Aspen and her fiancé, Trevor.

  • When in doubt, you catch her Sundays at Lulu’s brunch (pre-covid, of course)

  • Roadtrips + traveling are her jam, her favorite recent adventure was swimming with whale sharks

  • She has over 30 plants in her apartment #plantladygoals

Mary Case

Membership

Mary Case

Mary is responsible for making our 160+ members satisfied while also working towards the expansion of our inclusive and diverse network. She spent around two years in the technology consulting world before joining rvatech where she learned as much about technology as a non-technical person possibly could. She also learned the tough and uncomfortable world of outside sales and cold calling. Her success with building relationships is attributable to the fact that social is her middle name; just ask anyone in the RVATECH Community. She is a Virginia Tech grad and if you're looking for her in the fall, she's most likely watching Hokie football.

  • The one thing she's been inseparable from over the past 3 years is her 18 pound spoiled dachshund, Riley Case.

  • If you need a running buddy, hit her up.

  • She's made over 5,000 friends in 3 years....catch her on LinkedIn how 'bout dat.
