Madra Guinn Jones

“I joined the New Moms Board of Directors in 2019 as a way to deepen my connection to this amazing organization. As someone who was a young mom and who has worked with young moms, I have a profound appreciation for the generational difference New Moms is making in the lives of young families. I realized that joining the Board would provide an opportunity to use my strengths and help support New Moms’ sustainability for generations to come. It is an honor to serve this wonderful organization along with my fellow Board members.”
