As Financial Coordinator, Jen works to ensure that the funds our community has entrusted to the organization are used efficiently and keep JA financially healthy. She also helps to connect the organization with members of the community who want to add financial support to JA‘s mission. Jen comes to JA with experience as a small business owner and consultant as well as a teacher and school administrator. She has seen the lack of financial education in schools and has worked with many adults who were intimidated by finances or felt they had not been prepared to make smart education and career decisions. Jen is glad to be able to support an organization that helps young people become vocationally happy and financially confident adults, with a long-term positive effect on Maine’s workforce and economy.
