Welcome to Humans of JF&CS! Periodically, we will be featuring different staff members to highlight the amazing work they do.
Behind our 40+ programs are compassionate, committed, and dedicated staff who care deeply about our mission and our agency. With this broad range of programs comes a team of staff members with diverse interests, passions, and skills, who all share a deep commitment to building a strong foundation of well-being and resilience for our clients. We hope these staff spotlights give you a taste of the incredible individuals behind our services and a sense of the deep compassion and dedication they bring every day.
I'm a Senior Development Officer. I raise funds, but really what I'm doing is building relationships and working with volunteers and donors to foster their engagement with the agency. I get to learn what excites people about the organization and connect them to that area. I love working with donors and volunteers and really finding out what their passion is, and then finding out a way to connect them to what we do.
The thing I like a lot is when I’m working with couples, the ability to engage both with the agency in different ways that most interest them. It’s a unique quality of JF&CS. I have several couples where this is the case, so it’s always exciting to me when that happens, and people can truly find their passion separately. It’s an opportunity I love sharing with people as I meet them, especially couples who are interested in getting involved.
All around, I love what I do. My favorite part is the people, whether it be the staff, the donors, or the volunteers, it’s the people.
