Describe an average day for you. 

Driven, passionate, caring

Why are you passionate about RevJen’s work?

RevJen is a tremendous asset to the nonprofit sector. Allowing senior leaders to take time each month to step out of their daily existence and collaborate with peers wrestling with real world challenges is invaluable. Inside of a safe and caring space, peers help peers look at their formidable challenges and generate potential solutions to take back to the workplace. This isn’t theory or casework-- its dealing with challenges our leaders are facing today. It is great watching groups form and work together to address really tough issues. In the current COVID environment, I can’t image our sector without RevJen.

If you could wave a magic wand and change one thing about the nonprofit sector, what would it be? 

That nonprofits would have equal (or better) financial and human resources required to tackle the challenges facing us as a society. Too many nonprofits are working without sufficient resources, overworking and burning out their staff, trying to do everything that needs to be done.
