Jessica Krueger, national manager, shelter collaborative program
Jessica is the national manager for the shelter collaborative program. In this role she supports peer mentors and fellows as they work together to implement lifesaving programs. Jessica began her career in animal welfare with Best Friends in 2016 as an animal caregiver at the Atlanta lifesaving center and has been in several roles since then, from adoptions to shelter support. She helped the Atlanta program transition from a brick-and-mortar location to a community-based model and has loved watching the program grow! Her favorite part of her job is working with shelter staff, assisting in medical and naming litters of kittens.
Jessica lives outside of Atlanta with her husband, two tiny humans, two dogs, one cat, four chickens, and most likely a foster kitten.
