Wednesday, August 23, 2017

West-Central Independent Living Solutions, in Warrensburg, appoints Jessica Rhodes as marketing director.

Jessica Rhodes joined the WILS team as director of marketing and communications on Aug. 7. She earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology from Missouri Valley College in Marshall and her masterís degree in college student personnel administration from the University of Central Missouri.

Rhodes worked for the THRIVE program at the University of Central Missouri as case manager for the previous six years and as the executive director of Warrensburg Main Street the four years prior. She brings to the team an awareness of the role that independent living has in becoming a self-advocate and the importance of bringing awareness to the communities WILS serves. Her time spent in both positions has prepared her to bring attention to WILS and the services they provide.

She lives on a farm with her husband, Josh, and twin daughters, Finley Morel and Potter Joon, as well as her beloved dog, Kemper.

Rhodes is excited to join the WILS team and continuing to advocate for individuals with disabilities and their desire to live independently.
