Meet Our Team

JJ Cotter,

Executive Director


JJ's passion for housing has been a long time in the making. After completing her undergrad degree at the University of Stirling in Stirling, Scotland for Sociology, she landed her first Habitat role in Ontario County, as outreach and volunteer coordinator. From then on out, she's made it her personal mission to support affordable housing efforts locally and internationally - leading Habitat Global Village trips abroad and supporting local volunteer efforts. JJ was brought on board with Habitat for Humanity of Wayne County at the beginning of 2019. Overall, her main role is supporting the organization in its day-to-day endeavors, carrying out the operations to help create a successful, sustainable organization.
When not at work, you can find JJ exploring the great outdoors, possibly up in Maine ticking off the last 200 miles she has left of the Appalachian Trail. You can also find her with her dogs, or spending time with her family (in no particular order).
