Welcome Jenny Fleming

Jenny Fleming will be joining the summit family this year in her brave attempt to fill the amazing shoes of Heather DeSha.

Can she do it?

She has great experience with non-profits including United Way, the Day of Caring and a 5K Color Run.

She has a supportive family including 2 kids who help her bird watch and plant flowers to attract the yellow swallowtails that frequent their home in Pennsylvania.

And she has a love of adventure that includes sea shelling, kayaking and exploring nature.

Just don’t ask her to lead a snake expedition!

And Heather will be staying with us through the Tahoe Summit to help Jenny learn the ropes of our unique organization.
