Bio Coming Soon!


Program Director II

Before joining the Y family, Jennifer had several years of experience working for a variety of nonprofit organizations. She also taught business-related classes at the college level.

However, her favorite hobby was to be in or near the water. She had been a member of the Y for most of her life and was there almost every day swimming. One day in 2012, the aquatics director at the Atchison Y asked her if she would be interested in teaching swim lessons. She said yes and never looked back!

Since then, she has been a member engagement representative and interim aquatics director. She loves her job at the Y because she gets to meet new people everyday and make an impact on their lives in a positive way.

Healthy Living Director/Sports Director

From: Austin, Minnesota

I have been working for the Y on and off since November 2001. I started working at the Atchison Family YMCA/Cray Community Center in August of 2019. Before I was in my current role, I served as a Member Service Rep II, Youth Sports Director and Child Care Program Coordinator.

My favorite part of the job is getting to know and work with a wide variety of people.
