Our Board

Womenade is an all-volunteer board whose mission it is to help community members who are in a short-term crisis, by making funds available quickly to them to cover an emergent need that other organizations cannot fulfill.  By assisting in this manner, we hope to help them remain self-sufficient, and not be caught in a negative debt spiral.

 

Established in 2005 as the first Womenade in NH, we serve the Exeter school district (SAU 16), and have fostered the launch of 7 additional chapters in the state. Our Board shares all operating costs and 100% of all Donations go to the people and families we help.

OUR CURRENT MEMBERS:

Jennifer has a Masters of Public Health in Health Education and Health Behavior from the University of Michigan.  She combined her educational background with her love for fly-fishing and helped found Casting for Recovery, a fly-fishing retreat for women recovering from breast cancer.

 

After living in Ohio, Michigan, Alaska, Washington, Vermont, and Oregon, Jennifer and her husband, Tom Kunysz, left the fly-fishing industry in 2005 to settle in New Hampshire with their four children and purchase a small, local business.

When she’s not busy with her family, Jennifer enjoys travel, gardening, herbal medicine, cooking and learning new things. 

I first discovered Womenade in 2018 when our house was a stop on the Exeter Holiday House Tour. I was drawn to the mission of Womenade, and to the wonderful women who donated their time to support it. Early the next year, I was thrilled to be able to join them!

Karen Monaco

Karen, Womenade of Greater Squamscott’s number cruncher, provides up-to-the-minute reports on how much money is in the bank, how much Womenade made, how much we gave out. With an accounting degree from Boston College, she’s well prepared. 

 

Karen also loves activity, whether it’s walking, hiking, biking or skiing (snow and water). She and her husband, Bob, live in Stratham. They have 3 grown daughters and 4 grandchildren.

I joined Womenade when MJ asked because I love the efficiency and speed that a request gets processed.  Also it is fantastic that 100 percent of donations go right back into the community.
