STAFF & BOARD

Jennifer Borrell

President

 

Jennifer Borrell has a Master’s Degree in Library and Information Science and most recently worked at Etsy, where she acted as a “librarian of products,” making it easier for customers to find what they are looking for. Jenn has previously held similar positions with Grainger, Sears, and Motorola.

In 2015, she called Rep. Jan Schakowsky’s office to find out how she could help in response to the Syrian refugee crisis. They referred her to RefugeeOne and she and her husband, Jay, have been supporters ever since. As an avid crafter, Jenn was especially excited to see RefugeeOne open the Sewing Studio and offer sewing classes as a way for refugees to learn a new skill and break into the job market in their new home.

Jenn lives in Arlington Heights with Jay and their son. They are active members of St. John United Church of Christ.
