Just wondering if this is poison ivy. It does have groupings of 3 leaves, so I'm nervous that it might be. Thanks for any help!

It appears to have two leaflets below the end three, so no, not poison ivy.

Sooby is right. I copied your photo and to show you that your plant's leaves actually have five leaflets per leaf. I numbered two of them:

Definitely not PI (Toxicodendron radicans.) Does it have thorns?

That looks like Elderberry - Sambucus canadensis - given the opposite pairing of 5 leaflet leaves.
