Jennifer Nuernberg joined HHS as the Development Director in October 2018, having previously spent 3 years as the ED for Al-Van Humane Society in South Haven. With a bachelor’s degree in Journalism and advertising, Jen spent many years in the marketing field, but made the switch to animal welfare when she realized her passion for community education, animal rights and fighting for the “underdogs” was something she wanted to turn into a career. Jen was promoted to the Director of Marketing and Strategic Initiatives in summer 2021. Jen spends her life with her partner, Steven, and their 2 dogs, Sahara and Dax, but they have owned and fostered many pets over the years. They plan to fill their life with more pets and fosters, their love of travel, family, music and exploring the best local dive bars.
