In May 2017 Jennifer Kermode began her position as the Executive Director of the Gunnison Valley Regional Housing Authority. Prior to this post, she served as the Executive Director of the Summit Combined Housing Authority from 2007 to 2016, and created innovative programs to address their unique housing challenges. Her passion for tackling affordable workforce housing matters in rural and resort communities grew out of a 27-year career in residential mortgage lending, where Jennifer realized the magnitude of positive outcomes people experience when they have good homes to live in.
Jennifer is currently the Past-President of the Colorado Mountain Housing Coalition and a member of the Rotary Club of Gunnison County. She is already enjoying all the beautiful scenery, the variety of outdoor activities and the friendly people in her new home in Gunnison County.
