Women in Action welcomes new Executive Director 

Jennifer O'Connor comes on board as ED, Rachel Thesing to transition to new role with Advisory Council

As Women in Action (WIA) kicks off the celebration of our 10th anniversary, we are excited to announce the appointment of a new Executive Director and a change of roles for current Director, Rachel Thesing.  After founding WIA in 2006, Rachel, along with the WIA board, set out to provide much needed services for children and families in Big Sky.  In her new role as Chair of the WIA Advisory Council, Rachel will help ensure the future success of the organization. 

Women in Action is thrilled to have Jennifer O’Connor taking over as the new Executive Director.  Jennifer is no stranger to working with nonprofit organizations in Big Sky, after spending four years as the President of the Big Sky PTO and more recently as the Development Director for Morningstar Learning Center.   She is also an active leader of the Big Sky Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts.  She and her husband David, a partner in Buck’s T4, have three children at Ophir School.  With a love of collaboration and a dedication to the families of Big Sky, Jennifer is very excited about her new position.  Please welcome her as she leads us into our next decade of great things for the families and community members of Big Sky.

Please stop by our new office located at 47855 Gallatin Rd, Unit #1 - along highway 191 above Grizzly Outfitters Fly Shop - and introduce yourself to Jennifer.  You will find her in the office Wednesdays and Fridays, anxiously gearing up to work with you soon.
