Q: How did you first hear about BASE?
A: I started to attend BASE meetings with Mike Czerwonka while I was a student social worker being supervised by him at the Middle School during my Masters of Social Work Program.
Q: What is your favorite thing about being involved with BASE?
A: BASE’s mission and vision for the Evansville community is something I am very passionate about. I believe in public service and supporting people who are making a difference. I am grateful to be involved in the community I grew up in and I hope to at least half as much as the community and the people who live here have given to me!
When Jena isn’t at BASE you can find her refinishing furniture, walking her dog or canoodling around an antique shop!
