BOARD PROFILE: Meet Outpost’s Board Vice President, Jenny Keefe

Board Beet
By Your Board on December 2, 2019

The Board has made various efforts to engage Outpost’s owners in order to effectively carry out its oversight role. We need to know what owners think about the organization in order to make sure it continues to meet and exceed expectations. Engagement, however, is a two way street. So we’ve decided to do a series of profiles of our board members to help you get to know us. The second one is of Jenny Keefe, the Board’s vice president.

Jenny currently works as the Director of Family Services at SaintA. She oversees forty staff who support families in the foster care system.

Prior to her current position, Jenny worked in the social work field doing policy development. Her educational background includes a Masters in Social work. Working closely with families, both directly, and indirectly at a policy level, has reinforced her belief that access to healthy food is inextricably linked to their wellbeing and success.

Jenny’s interest in serving on the Board came about after spending time on the board of the National Association of Social Workers. She enjoyed that experience, but wanted to have a bigger impact, and to have that impact on a more local basis.

By the time she leaves the Board, Jenny wants to help the organization better define what our community feels is healthy. She also cares deeply about the environment, and wants to make sure the organization continues to lead in this area. She is particularly proud of how Outpost has set an example with respect to sustainability.
