The Delaware & Lehigh National Heritage Corridor is pleased to announce the addition of two new team members: Tim Cramer, filling the role of Facilities and Infrastructure Manager, and Gianna Caruso in the position of Communications Coordinator. Both Tim and Gianna bring passion and enthusiasm to their roles, and we are excited to have their expertise in our continued journey!
Gianna Caruso joined the D&L team in September 2021 as the new Communications Coordinator. Gianna has taken on the critical role of nurturing the D&L’s many community connections, while creating and fostering new ones. She is responsible for the maintenance of the organizational website and coordinating the D&L’s various social media accounts. She also serves as our main point of contact with the media, while creating marketing and communication strategies for events held throughout the Corridor.
Gianna graduated with a B.A. in Communication and Social Influence from Temple University. Before joining the D&L, she interned remotely as the Communication Team Lead for an animal welfare nonprofit organization. In her free time, she enjoys baking, music, and nature photography. While not a native to PA, Gianna was raised in Staten Island, home to several historic districts and best known as New York City’s “greenest borough.” Growing up on Staten Island allowed her to develop a love for history and the environment at a young age. She is excited that working on the D&L Trail allows her to enjoy two of her longtime passions in one setting, experiencing both the rich history and wildlife found throughout the region.
Tim joined the D&L in June 2021 as the Facilities and Infrastructure Manager. In this position, Tim is responsible for ensuring that the buildings, grounds, and other infrastructure associated with the D&L remain in excellent shape and that they perform as they should. He keeps a close eye on everything from the Josiah White II Canal Boat to the computers in the Emerick Technology Center with a focus on preventive maintenance so that the D&L’s excellent team can work at its best. Tim is almost a Jack-of-all-trades, having spent most of his adult life in the building trades. He started in residential construction, then transitioned to the precast/prestress concrete industry where he worked his way from an hourly laborer to Plant manager. He also has extensive experience in the quality control field.
Tim was born and raised in the Pittsburgh, Pa area. He earned his B.A. in History at Indiana University of Pennsylvania, and is working on a Master’s in History at Lehigh University. He enjoys travel and has lived in several states and also in the Republic of Ireland while studying at Trinity College in Dublin. In his free time, Tim enjoys playing piano, trombone, and guitar. He also reads voraciously on many subjects and enjoys the outdoors (especially in winter) with his wife, two sons, and two high-energy dogs.
