We are in an exciting phase of growth and reorganization, which has prompted us to hire Jennifer Naugler for a 3-month contract to take on the responsibilities of the Executive Director. Jen was already a volunteer on our Communications Committee and has the expertise that will compliment our team very well.

 

She will be assessing the scope of this position, helping us grow the membership, collaborating with the South Shore business groups and community and responding to the needs of the board and the members.  

 

Here's a little background about Jennifer:

 

Jennifer Naugler is the owner of Simple Local Life, a media company celebrating life on the South Shore of Nova Scotia. They work promoting local businesses and events through Facebook Live series and content creation and in the past year developed a product line of candles that they now wholesale to various businesses as well as sell at Farmers Markets and shows. 

 

Jennifer also offers social media training, workshops and is a service provider through Digital Nova Scotia. She has worked previously with various businesses and groups including the Municipality of the District of Chester, PropertyGuys.Com, Gow’s Home Hardware, the Lahave River Credit Union and Wile’s Lake Farm Market.
