What would you think about newcomers who moved to the Quad Cities, rolled up their sleeves and got all the way into the hard work of advocating for and educating us, devoting themselves to our economic development and the care of our most vulnerable?
How about, “Welcome!” and “Thank you!!”
Our guests this episode grace the April/May cover of Prescott Woman Magazine and have called Prescott Valley home for the last 4 years. Lesley Jenkins is the regional director for the Alzheimer’s Association Southwest Chapter, which is based here in Prescott. Her husband, Rodney Jenkins is the Vice President of Community Relations and Student Development at Yavapai College. In their long careers of service, Lesley has worked in media relations and a host of nonprofits, and Rodney has been a successful political organizer and municipal official. The thread throughout their career seems to be about weaving people together with the resources they need to live their best lives.
Stay tuned for a lot of laughter, a bit of courtship timeline debate, community compassion, and inspiration as we talk with these two accomplished, passionate leaders about their work to make things better for all of us here in the Prescott area.
This is the Prescott Woman Podcast, an audio supplement of Prescott Woman Magazine and we’re your hosts, Kelly Roberge and Charles Matheus.
