New Executive Director at Komen West Michigan in Forest Hills | Community Spirit
Jennifer Jurgens says her position as the new Executive Director of Komen West Michigan is a dream job. Komen West Michigan is located near Cascade Road and I-96 in the Forest Hills area.
Jurgens has an extensive background in the private sector and a history of service work including TEDxGrand Rapids, Laughfest, and several events tied to cancer education, research, and awareness. "My mother passed from breast cancer when she was 36 and I was 12. As I was building my professional career, my spare time was [spent] in volunteer service for cancer related projects. When this opportunity came along, it allowed me to continue to do the things I am doing and am passionate about, but make a career out of it."
