Jennyfer Russe

Jennyfer is a “Jackie of all Trades”: she wears many hats and arguably could be described as one of the hardest working people at Third Way. Jennyfer is friendly and loves working with the staff and bringing order to chaos. She has a passion for organization, systems, technology, and structure—and she is the one who ensures that everything gets done. As an Operations Coordinator with the Business Operations team, Jennyfer supports human resources in addition to Third Way’s technology operations.

Prior to joining Third Way, Jennyfer worked at the National Head Start Association as an Operations Support Specialist. She worked directly with the CFO and COO to design and implement procedural efficiencies. She also assisted the technology department with IT-related duties. She quickly came up with processes to better serve the financial and IT needs of the organization.

Before transitioning into the nonprofit sector, she used her technical skills in the medical industry as an optometric technician. There, Jennyfer taught her patients how the care and handling of specialty lenses would provide a life-changing experience to them. She also helped implement new procedures to accompany new medical technology.

When Jennyfer is not working towards her goal of becoming an IT specialist, she manages her top priority as a wife and a mother of two beautiful daughters. In her spare time (of which there is very little) Jennyfer likes to travel, cook, and binge-watch new shows on Netflix.
