Jeanette Burk joined Literacy Rochester as the Community Engagement Coordinator in May 2023, contributing over 25 years of marketing and project management experience.
Jeanette is a Rochester, NY native and has a Master of Science Degree in Strategic Marketing from Roberts Wesleyan University.
Her industry concentrations include engineering, law, manufacturing, medical/pharmaceutical, non-profit, and software/technology.
Jeanette was drawn to advocacy work earlier in her career when working for the YMCA of Greater Rochester and recently for Rochester Hearing and Speech Center.
Being part of the Literacy Rochester family has allowed Jeanette to continue her passion-led career within an educational, community-based agency.
“My role with Literacy Rochester is much more than the job description entails. I look forward to making personal connections and adding value to their mission using my skills.”
Outside of work, you will find Jeanette spending time with her family at their woodland camp, gardening, home-remodeling projects, being an empty-nester parent to her son, Dylan, and cheering on her favorite football team. Go Bills!!!
