A native of Seattle, Washington, Jeff made New Orleans his adopted home in 1998. He attended the University of New Orleans, where he studied Sociology. After many years working in the corporate staffing industry as a professional recruiter, Jeff began working part-time at YEP in 2011. He has been thrilled to positively contribute to the New Orleans community as a full-time YEP staff member since 2013.
70 percent of YEP’s staff members are born and raised in New Orleans and the vast majority grew up in the same neighborhoods that our youth live in. Our staff members’ personal understanding of the challenges that our young people face make them uniquely qualified to provide support to YEP youth.
