Jeni Craswell Joins US Quidditch Board

Jeni Craswell, Chief Engagement Officer at Craswell Consulting, is joining the USQ Board of Directors, effective immediately.

Craswell was selected as part of the Board's efforts to recruit talented, passionate, and experienced individuals.

As a consultant, Craswell works closely with individuals, non-profits, and corporations to maximize the work that they do and increase the enjoyment of their jobs. From team building to meeting facilitation, her focus is on building strong relationships in teams and organizations that support each other and work together toward a shared vision.

An enthusiastic student of all forms of leadership, Craswell is a former Board Chair and active facilitator and volunteer with Leadership Eastside, an organization that applies the principles of Adaptive Leadership to help people collaborate, innovate, and thrive. In addition, she sits on the Board of Eastside Baby Corner, which distributes essential items to over 9,500 children across 49 cities. Craswell holds a Masters degree in Organization Systems Design with a focus on Leadership and Community Engagement from Seattle University and a Bachelor of Arts in English from Whitman College. She has been a fan of quidditch since the beginning and has watched with interest as US Quidditch has formed and grown over the last 10 years.

“I am fascinated by the process of helping a new sport grow and gain popularity and recognition in the sports community. I am amazed by the work that has been accomplished by US Quidditch in the first 10 years and look forward to participating in its future success. Title 9 ¾ makes quidditch a ground-breaking sport. It is at the forefront of gender equality and inclusivity in today’s world. I love that USQ is out there leading the way and showing how it works,” said Craswell.

Craswell will be joining the Board of Directors immediately. The board meets in person two times per year and holds conferences calls once per month to set and guide the long-term mission and financial health of the organization.
