Leadership Team


Janice Jensen

President & Chief Executive Officer

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.
