Director of Advocacy
Jenn Kersey holds a Master of Leadership Development degree from Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College, a Bachelor of Science degree in Health Education from Indiana State University and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Health and Kinesiology from Purdue University. She served as Executive Director for the Vigo County YMCA, and prior to that she worked for Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College as the Director of Events and Strategic Programs. Kersey’s responsibilities at SMWC also included the oversight of the college’s wellness and sports marketing programs.
Jenn currently serves as a committee member for the Parke County Community Foundation, where she has volunteered on several committees, including the Board of Directors, since 2007. She has also been a member of Better Health Wabash Valley since 2014, where she enjoys collaborating with other organizations in the Wabash Valley that have the same passion for healthy living. Kersey also sits on the Community Advisory Council for Foundation for Autism Resources where she assists with outreach, planning and fundraising efforts. As an autism advocate, Kersey’s efforts include working with state legislators to improve access to Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) therapy to those who are on the autism spectrum.
As Director of Advocacy and a registered lobbyist, Jenn has an external role in the community, cultivating leadership in organizations so that they may seek partners, influence decisions, and empower others. Fostering a sense of achievement, she works with organizations so that they may be intentional in collaboration, leadership, and advocacy – the three pillars of RJL Solutions.
While she enjoys her work as a professional and a volunteer in the community, she loves the gift of being a mother to sons Couper and James, and sharing that responsibility with her husband, Kyle. They reside in Parke County where Kyle is Principal of Riverton Parke Jr. and Sr. High School for Southwest Parke Community School Corporation.
