Shannon Healey, our Camp Promise Registrar, joined Jett Foundation in 2016. Shannon started doing nonprofit work and then switched to a 10 year stint in the corporate world. She was looking to switch back to nonprofit work because she wanted to do something that felt rewarding to her and she wanted to show her kids that helping others and contributing to the world is a terrific reward.
Shannon says that she remains inspired to do her job every day by seeing people do things that they didn’t think were possible or overcoming their fears. She loves the focus on “firsts” at Camp Promise, whether it’s something like going zip lining or trying a new food. “Getting out there and experiencing life - all the small and big things- is really important to me and working here has only enhanced that.”
