When the shoe is on the other foot

I have been asking questions for more than 30 years. I know a good answer when I hear one. Now I know what it’s like to be on the other end of that process.

VoyagePhoenix was kind of enough to share my story of founding JDD Specialties. It was a fun Q&A and an honor to be included in the online magazine’s popular “Phoenix’s Most Inspiring Stories” feature.

Here’s a link to the article posted on Oct. 19: Meet Jennifer Dokes of JDD Specialties 





Act One

Making the case

“This is who we are. This is what we do. This is why it matters.”

Geri Wright, president and CEO of Act One

JDD Specialties prepared a case statement for the Act One Field Trip Program that told the story of the Phoenix-based nonprofit. Act One removes financial and logistical barriers to ensuring students in Title I schools have an arts-related field trip experience.
