Leadership Team


Janice Jensen

President & Chief Executive Officer

In her years at the helm of Habitat EBSV, Janice has overseen a dramatic increase in home production and families served, led two successful mergers, expanded our programs and services, and become a prominent voice for affordable housing at the state and national levels.

Krysta Morgenthaler

Vice President & Chief Development Officer

In her time with Habitat EBSV, Krysta has worn many hats, including fundraising, volunteer management, and marketing. She now oversees a passionate team that works to grow and engage our broad community of support, but as a veteran of dozens of Habitat builds, she can still swing a hammer with the best.

Kevin Elliott

Vice President of Housing Development

Kevin brings to Habitat EBSV a broad base of experience in construction management, across a wide variety of endeavors from single family homes, to multifamily developments, to commercial construction. He leads a dedicated staff through an exciting time of growth and development in home construction and general contracting.
