Southern Oregon Director
Kena joined Sparrow Clubs USA in July of 2016 as the Southern Oregon Program Coordinator. As a young girl Kena discovered that coming alongside a child to care and mentor is not only a pure joy, but also an honor. Her experience as a staff leader with Boys and Girls Club USA, and coach with National Youth Sports Program confirmed a deep desire that she wanted to be a part of her community on a deeper level. It became a priority for her to do her part to nourish and encourage children and their families.
Kena is a born and raised Oregonian. She graduated from Southern Oregon University in 2003, and now resides, with her husband and Five children, in the Rogue Valley as an active member and “lover” of her community. She loves spending time with her family and friends, whether it be hiking, swimming, being silly, or being a listening ear; “Life is about adventure, and saying ‘Yes’ to where each day can take you. Just enjoy all the moments.”
