Name and pronouns:

Jennifer L. Boutte, she/her

Title and time with the organization:

Vice President of Community Engagement, 1 year

What is your role here at Goodwill of the Finger Lakes?

As VP of Community Engagement, I oversee all fundraising and development, marketing, and public relations for Goodwill of the Finger Lakes. Along with my team, I also oversee the Good Neighbor Program.

What do you enjoy most about working at Goodwill?

When I started this role, I was seeking something where I could impact the community on a greater scale. Goodwill of the Finger Lakes is an organization with a lot of moving parts, and I love that there are opportunities to take Goodwill to parts of the community that we didn't historically impact.

What activities do you enjoy in your free time/what is a fun fact about yourself?

I love traveling with my daughter. We love exploring new and fun destinations, especially where there is delicious food, gorgeous art, and shopping.
