Jayjack named Director of Communications
Help INHF congratulate Joe Jayjack, our new Director of Communications! Jayjack has been serving as interim director since the beginning of June and will now take over the position permanently. Jayjack will oversee all INHF communications and outreach, including media relations, Iowa Natural Heritage quarterly magazine, INHF's Off the Beaten Path blog, social media, member email and the Iowa By Trail app. He will continue to be responsible for the maintenance and upgrades for INHF's website and supervising the communications team and interns.
Joe hails from Council Bluffs in the Loess Hills of western Iowa and graduated from the University of South Dakota with a degree in journalism. He has worked for the Des Moines Register as a designer and on the art staff at Cuisine at Home magazine at August Home Publishing.
When Joe joined the INHF team in December as a communications specialist, he knew the position was a great fit: "I have been following INHF for a long time," he said. "I have always been interested in conservation and have enjoyed the work that INHF has done. With my interest in storytellling and conservation, I thought this would be the perfect job to combine the two and help share the story of the work that INHF does across the state."
Joe can be reached by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 515-288-1846, ext. 19.
