Jenae Nichols

Business Development & Marketing Specialist

Being an attentive and mission-driven communicator is something I am constantly striving for. I am a ‘glass-half-full’ individual with a passion for cultivating joyful, impactful relationships.

Originally from Bend, Oregon, the home of the last Blockbuster and craft IPA’s, I love to experience new opportunities. I graduated from the University of Oregon with a B.S. in Public Relations and a minor in Nonprofit Administration (SCO Ducks!). I moved to Arizona following graduation to continue to grow and gain new perspectives.

Throughout college, I held the role of an AppleCare Advisor where I helped inspire and troubleshoot technical issues for loyal customers. I also worked with Volunteers in Medicine Clinic to provide strategic communication services. Ensuring genuine, authentic connections are key.

I am ecstatic to work at Y Scouts where Purpose is put first and the values align with my own.
