Executive Director: Jena Mottola
 Nonprofits each have a culture of their own, but what doesn’t change is the skills needed to run one smoothly.  Learning to play nice in the sandbox lends nicely to strong partnerships and a healthy organization. Jena Mottola  comes to NHPA with over 25 years in the nonprofit arena. When Jena first started her career her focus was on family  and immigrant literacy education and outreach. Her years working in Cambridge, Massachusetts gave her the  foundation and experience to understand a broad range of social and economic issues that communities continue to  face today.

 Moving back to the Midwest was when Jena began leading a team of professionals at a nonprofit museum. Jumping  in with her sleeves rolled, she quickly took the organization from a marginal number of visitors to over fifteen thousand per year. No small feat. She did this by raising additional grant funds, gaining memberships, expanding educational programming and hiring a supporting staff. That sounds simple on paper but what it means is that Jena’s professional strategy focuses on three main areas when aligning herself with any organization; partnerships, fiscal preparedness and leading a thriving team.

Jena is passionate about nonprofit work and has a personal and lifelong respect for mental health. In her spare time she immerses herself in all things health and nutrition. She loves hiking and hanging out with her husband, two kiddos and the family dog. Jena holds a dual master’s degree in nonprofit management as well as negotiation and conflict resolution.
