ReMerge Welcomes Jenna Morey as New Executive Director
ReMerge is thrilled to welcome its new executive director upon the retirement of Terri Woodland. On June 1, Jenna Morey becomes the second executive director of ReMerge since its founding in 2011. Morey comes to ReMerge from Goodwill Industries of Central Oklahoma where she served as Vice President of Workforce Development. Prior to joining Goodwill, Morey led state efforts to expand apprenticeship and work-based learning opportunities under the Oklahoma Office of Workforce Development and, before that, spent nearly a decade working with international nonprofits.
"I am thrilled to join the talented team at ReMerge and be a part of an organization that helps mothers facing incarceration transform their lives. The impact of ReMerge’s work reverberates through generations and I am honored to bring my passion, experience, and energy to the organization’s dedicated staff, board, and community supporters. Together, we will build upon ReMerge’s successful history and amplify our reach and ability to improve the lives of the women we serve."
Board chair, Bevan Stockdell says, “Jenna brings to ReMerge a strong background in workforce development and social enterprise. Stable employment and wages that can support a family are critical for the lifetime success of our graduates. We are particularly excited about Jenna’s ability to create supportive employment opportunities at ReMerge and build upon our relationships with Fair Chance Employers in the city.”
With a new building and executive director, ReMerge is excited to begin a new chapter in serving women and children throughout central Oklahoma. For more information on ReMerge, please visit www.remergeok.org.
