Get to know our facilitator, Jackie Steffenhagen:
Bio: Jackie Steffenhagen – I have been with CUNA Mutual Group going on seven years this May. I am currently a Business Process Consultant on our direct-to-consumer Partner Management team. I have my Project Management Professional (PMP)® certification and graduated with my MBA from Edgewood College just last December. In addition to my hired role, I also volunteer my time serving on the Core Leadership Team of our Allies for Disabilities ERG. Additionally, last year I undertook running our #RandomCoffee program which fosters random connections within our workforce. Outside of work, I am married with four kids, three daughters ages 16, 15, and 13 years, and a son who is 9 years old. I have a passion for learning about and serving the community of people living with disabilities because of my own journey of living with a permanent physical disability.
