New Recreation Leader at Almaden
Introducing...Amy

Hello! Although I have had the pleasure of meeting with many of you already, I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself. My name is Amy Jewett and I have recently transferred to the Almaden Community Center to coordinate the Active Adult 50+ programs. I have a true passion for working with older adults and could not be happier about my new position. I graduated from San Jose State University with a Bachelors of Science in Kinesiology with a minor in Psychology, where I focused on health, wellness, and physical activity throughout the lifespan. I am a firm believer that if you don’t use it, you lose it! Please feel free to stop by my office any time to chat, especially if you are a volunteer (or interested in becoming one)! I am truly looking forward to building a connection with each and every one of you.

Best Regards,
Amy Jewett
