The Kentucky Financial Empowerment Commission, also known as KFEC, has named Jennifer Inman as its new executive director.
Before joining KFEC, Inman taught financial literacy at Boone County High School in Florence. She has also worked extensively with the John Jay Center for Learning, a nonprofit technical education center located in Portland, Indiana. She received her bachelor’s degree from Indiana Wesleyan University, a master’s degree in teaching business and marketing from the University of the Cumberlands, and completed graduate studies in economics and finance at Northern Kentucky University.
The commission’s goal is to teach financial literacy to target groups in Kentucky, like people with disabilities, low-income families, students, veterans, Kentucky’s elderly residents, as well as state employees.
Now, Inman will lead the commission to improve the financial literacy and financial education of Kentuckians, continuing programs to support financial educators as well.
“Jennifer brings a wealth of experience to this role,” according to Kentucky Treasurer Allison Ball. “She has taught financial education to high schoolers and worked in both the finance and nonprofit sectors. Each part of her background fits perfectly with the commission’s needs and goals.”
