Jaylene joined the Junior League of Long Beach in 2014 after meeting other JLLB members through her work in the Long Beach community. She quickly realized that she wanted to be part of this organization that provides ongoing opportunities for the professional development of women and volunteering in her community. She enjoys the camaraderie, support and mentorship that she has found within the League and knows that she will be challenged each year to learn something new.
Jaylene received her Bachelor’s Degree in Sociology from Cal State Long Beach and started her career working on a crisis hotline for survivors of sexual assault.
