    About Niki Benfield

    Niki is a proud mom of two boys, two dogs, and one cat. She is a HUGE fan of “The Office” and “Downton Abbey” and loves spending time outside, gardening, sightseeing, and hiking!

    Where are you from? Tell us about you!

    I was born and raised in a small town, Varina, not far from Richmond, Virginia. Other than living in Texas for 18 months in my early 20’s, I have resided in Virginia my entire life!

    What brings you to Jett Foundation?

    “I previously worked at the Muscular Dystrophy Association for 16 years before joining the Jett Foundation Team. During my time at MDA, I had many roles, but being the Camp Director of the Greater VA MDA camp for 5 years was by far my favorite! I am excited to bring my past experience to the Camp Promise summer camp program and to be a part of it’s magic for the first time this summer!

    Tell us some fun facts about you!

    • I have had a total of 7 cats and dogs in my life, and all of their names have ended with a Y!
    • Things that make me happy are: making others smile, my fur babies, seeing my kids succeed in life, and my job!

    What are you most excited about at Jett Foundation?

    I can’t wait to be back to in person camps this summer, where I will get to know our Camp Promise campers and volunteers better!”
