As the Intercultural Outreach Coordinator, Jeanna will partner with Community Education departments to identify programming needs and facilitate programs that are accessible and relevant to multicultural and historically underserved populations in our district community. She will also work to introduce our community to its new and unknown neighbors through cultural awareness opportunities. Her favorite part of her new position is being part of Community Education’s commitment to inclusion, welcoming, and accessibility.

Before joining the WDMCS Community Education team, Jeanna worked with refugee communities developing programming for ethnic community-based organizations in the Midwest and international non-governmental organizations. A cultural exchange experience in Rwanda and Tanzania inspired her to connect with and assist the world’s most vulnerable populations. Her work has taken her to 12 countries, including time spent living in Thailand and Egypt. She enjoys going for coffee with friends, reading, and recreating foods she enjoyed during her travels.
