Jenni’s true calling came when her son was born with Down syndrome. Intent on “changing the world,” Jenni dove head first into her role at GoodLife in 2018. Jenni has been integral to the development and start-up of our Rise and Team Work opportunities for residents across Johnson and Douglas Counties and is helping us to build next-generation services for the seniors we serve. She served on the Board of Directors and as Board President for The Down Syndrome Guild of Greater Kansas City (DSG). Jenni has been instrumental in creating successful programs, including Eastland FRIENDS, a community group through the DSG. Her education and degree is in design, but her heart is with helping individuals with intellectual or developmental disabilities (I/DD) feel loved, needed and appreciated.
