Executive Director: Jena Mottola
 Nonprofits each have a culture of their own, but what doesn’t change is the skills needed to run one  smoothly. Learning to play nice in the sandbox lends nicely to strong partnerships and a healthy  organization. Jena Mottola comes to NHPA with over 25 years in the nonprofit arena. When Jena first  started her career her focus was on family  and immigrant literacy education and outreach. Her years  working in Cambridge, Massachusetts gave her the foundation and experience to understand a broad  range of social, cultural, and economic issues that communities continue to face today.

 Moving back to the Midwest was when Jena began leading a team of professionals at a nonprofit  museum. Jumping  in with her sleeves rolled, she quickly took the organization from a marginal number of visitors to over fifteen thousand per year. No small feat. She did this by raising additional grant funds, gaining memberships, expanding educational programming and hiring a supporting staff. That sounds simple on paper but what it means is that Jena’s professional strategy focuses on three main areas when aligning herself with any organization; partnerships, fiscal preparedness and leading a thriving team.

Jena is passionate about nonprofit work and has a personal and lifelong respect for mental health. In her spare time she immerses herself in all things health and nutrition. She loves hiking, snowshoeing, and time with her family when travel allows. Jena holds a dual master’s degree in nonprofit management as well as negotiation and conflict resolution.

Continuing Education Coordinator: Brooke Baron, Psy.D.

 Brooke is thrilled to join NHPA as CE Coordinator. She is a Licensed Clinical Psychologist with extensive  experience in both Program Administration and Adult Outpatient Psychotherapy. Born and raised in New  Hampshire, Brooke briefly left the area to complete her doctoral studies in California. Upon returning to New  Hampshire, she completed her APA accredited Predoctoral Internship and Postdoctoral Fellowship at a  community mental health center on the seacoast. After completing these programs, Brooke taught as adjunct  faculty in higher education and worked as a clinician in group private practice. Brooke exited clinical practice  when she discovered her passion for program administration, and she worked in a university setting for many  years. Supporting the work of psychologists through NHPA is a natural fit for Brooke, which affords her the  opportunity to match her background in both Program Administration and Psychology.
