Chris spent the early years of her career working as a consultant to corporations and governments designing retirement programs. Over the last 11 years, she has shifted her focus, using her facilitation and leadership skills in a wide variety of roles in aging and other community services. Among her many roles, Chris was a facilitator for Vital Aging Network’s Aging with Gusto series for several years. Most recently she worked at Sholom, where she developed the CARES education series designed to connect adults caring for aging parents with appropriate community resources.
“Chris brings incredible passion and knowledge about the field of aging services,” said JFS CEO Ruth Olkon. “We are very fortunate to have her on our team.”
“I’m excited to join JFS’ vibrant and innovative agency and work alongside the dedicated staff,” said Chris.
