Jan has had a long career in leadership positions, most specifically building and managing community and volunteer programs. Her most recent role was as the Massachusetts Regional Director for Philadelphia-based Minding Your Mind, a youth mental health education program. Prior to that, she was the Director of SOAR 55, a federal volunteer program for adults age 55 and over. During her 24-year tenure, she re-branded the program, expanding the roles of volunteers to include skills-based, capacity-building volunteer assignments that enabled nonprofits to benefit from the professional experience that the new generation of older adults brought.
Jan has always been interested in work that enhances community, contributes to the well-being of others, and connects people to opportunities that enable them to grow personally. Jan began her tenure with Cambridge Neighbors as volunteer director in 2018. A huge supporter of Cambridge Neighbors, she is excited to serve as executive director.
