The Northeastern Conference of Seventh-day Adventists employed JeNean in 2005 as an administrative assistant to the Youth Department.

Upon accepting the position as Communication Director of the Lake Region Conference, she shares, “it’s with a thankful heart and humility that I take on this extraordinary opportunity. I know it’s only with God are these things possible.” JeNean desires to use her God-given gifts and talents to serve others and show the love of Jesus in creative, practical, and life-changing ways.
