Jeff oversees School Age Care, Outreach/Character Development, and Nourish - Youth Nutrition Collaborative. Jeff joined the Y in 2017. He has a Master’s Degree in Psychology and brings 10 years of non-profit experience serving the Quad Cities. Jeff believes the best way to “teach” kids is to inspire them to explore and develop their own passions. This is best captured by Oliver Wendell Holmes Sr. who said, “One’s mind is stretched by a new idea or sensation, and never shrinks back to its former dimensions.” In his spare time, Jeff enjoys playing soccer, biking, kayaking, and going to the library with his family.
