Jenny Desmond

A Latin American at heart, Jenny joined the Intercambio team in 2009. From 2009-2014 she was the Lafayette Program Manager, engaged on a daily basis with English learners and their volunteer teachers. She returned to Intercambio in 2015 as the Community Events Manager leading fundraising and program events that help bridge communities across cultural and language divides. Jenny became the Director of Development in 2018, utilizing her master’s degree in Leadership for Nonprofits to lead a dynamic team of marketing, development, events, grant writing and evaluation. Jenny is quick to say, “I love meeting with donors and sharing how biases decrease and understanding increases, through the participation of donors, volunteers and students. We ALL learn and grow through Intercambio, and it genuinely builds a better world”
Jenny has a husband and three children. She is a Colorado native and if you can’t find her in Colorado, she’s probably in Cuba. She will tell you she loves anything with lime and cilantro, dancing salsa, and the musician Pitbull.
