Gus Voorhees is a communications coordinator at JFF. In that role, he helps manage the development, production, design, and editing of multimedia content for program teams.
With a diverse background in theater, photography, and nonprofit fundraising, he has a skill set that enables him to focus on the details of individual projects while also maintaining a broader strategic view that incorporates organizational goals and priorities.
