Jomylene served the double billet of being Interfaith’s public relations expert and the special events director, during my last year of service at Interfaith. In every instance of a very busy workload, I found Jomylene’s work to be exceptionally innovative, artistic and creative. She was constantly focused toward the larger organizational goals and clearly articulated the vision of Interfaith with eloquence. Her loyalty to cause was consistent and her enthusiasm absolutely unparalleled. She at all times, displayed a compassion and understanding that demonstrated real practical grounding. She is a tireless worker who is always first among those to arrive and last to leave. She is never afraid to tackle new, complicated projects yet always meets tight deadlines.”
