“Meet the board” is a series of posts to help you get to know the members of your Eliot Neighborhood Association Board.

Jere has lived in Eliot since Jan 2009. She has been on the board for two years as Co-Chair with Patricia Montgomery. This year she is the Chair. Jere wanted to join the board because she wanted to get to know more neighbors and get involved in local issues and events.

Something you might not know about Jere is that she was very active in student government and the newspaper in high school, where she learned a lot about organizing and working together. Eliot Neighborhood Association feels a lot like that time to her. She really enjoys working with neighbors.  Also, she is retired from teaching science in PPS middle school. Jere likes to keep fit by walking and biking. She leads active events in two Meetup groups. She is also interested in active travel. She has led walks across England and Ireland. This past summer she biked 711 miles on the C&O Canal Path, the GAP Trail, Ohio rails-to-trails and the Katy Trail. Biking in France and Greece are next on her agenda.
