Director at Large, Leadership Development
Jessica Morales serves as Director of Institutional Advancement at Canterbury School in Fort Wayne. As the Director of Institutional Advancement, Jessica leads and is responsible for the strategic process to advance mission-appropriate constituent relations through the integration of the school’s admission, marketing and communications, and development programs. Her work directly affects and impacts the story, connection, success, and love for every Canterbury student, parent, teacher, alumni, and supporter.
Jessica earned her bachelor’s in Communications and master’s in Business Administration from Iona College in New Rochelle, New York. In June 2018, Jessica moved to Fort Wayne to seize an opportunity to have an impact in a new school, new city, new demographic, and, most importantly, with new people. Ultimately, what ended up grabbing her attention was the undeniable investment, growth, momentum, and pride in Fort Wayne and the northeast Indiana region.
Jessica is active in the community and loves getting involved with organizations that have a direct, scalable impact on people, their access, and their futures. In addition to serving Leadership Development for YLNI, she proudly serves on the board of directors for the Boys and Girls Club of Fort Wayne and chairs the External Affairs Committee. She is a graduate of Greater Fort Wayne Inc.’s Leadership Fort Wayne 2020 Cohort and will help lead a new Greater Fort Wayne program for newcomers to the region called Onboard Fort Wayne. She is also involved in the digital publication, Input Fort Wayne, and serves as a local volunteer/advocate for the national non-profit organization, Comfort Cases. In her free time, Jessica loves spending quality time with her fiancé, their french bulldog, and friends and family. Her hobbies include traveling to new destinations (both domestic and international), enjoying concerts, theater productions, and sporting events, staying active outdoors, and experiencing local restaurants and breweries
