Jewell is the new Executive Director of NSCECE. A recognized leader in the non-profit sector, she has a career anchored in helping children and families thrive. Jewell’s collaborative leadership style has resulted in significant innovation and lasting impact in the communities where she works, such as the geographic expansion of family resource services for families across Annapolis County, and most recently, the establishment of the YW Jean E.S. Irving Centre of Women and Children – a $3.5 million project designed to provide multi-layered educational, employment, housing and childcare supports to women and children, in Greater Moncton community. Jewell’s commitment to social justice and willingness to use her voice to affect change, has led her to many decision-making tables, not to mention center stage at the United Nations, a life changing experience she writes about in the international best-selling anthology: Dreaming Big Being Bold, Inspiring Stories from Trailblazers, Visionaries, and Change Makers, Vol 1. An introvert at heart, Jewell spends her free time writing fiction and enjoying the outdoors with her husband Tim, their five young adult children, and Ollie – their Wonderdog.
