Meet Our Executive Team


If you're here, you're probably familiar with Jenn Andrews, Co-Founder and Executive Director of the Move For Jenn Foundation.  With a bachelor’s degree in Organizational Communications from UNC Charlotte, Jenn has been self-employed since January 2015 as a health and wellness coach, leading others to better health and serving as a key leader for her team.  Combined with several years of sales and customer service experience in the insurance industry, Jenn has a proven track record of managing large blocks of business and handling both employees and customers with care and respect.  Her role in the Move For Jenn Foundation as Executive Director and head of the events committee is a perfect fit to showcase her management and event planning skills, relationship building, and her passion of helping others going through what she experienced first-hand, battling cancer and learning to walk again.

In her spare time, Jenn enjoys fitness classes, running, cooking, event planning and spending time with friends and family including her two amazing children and loving dogs.

Lyla Kiel joined the team in 2020 as a volunteer, and quickly worked her way into the role of Advocacy & Outreach Coordinator at the Move For Jenn Foundation.  Her passion to help others in the sarcoma community stems from the untimely death of her mother from osteosarcoma in 2018.  She wants to do whatever she can to help others battling sarcoma and personally understands the effects that fighting this battle has on, not only the individual, but family and friends too. 

Lyla graduated from the University of Texas at Austin in 2019 with a bachelor's degree in Sociology and a minor in Educational Psychology.  In her free time she enjoys going on walks, spending time with her family and friends, reading self-help books, and having the occasional 60 second living room dance party.

Kelsey Ruocco (pronounced rock-o) joined the team in 2022 as the Social Media & Marketing Coordinator.  Born and raised in the Northern VA/DC area, Kelsey is a 2013 graduate of West Virginia University. There, she majored in Sport Management, which ultimately brought her to Charlotte to start a career with the Charlotte Checkers. During her time with the Checkers, Kelsey was able to work with a myriad of non-profits, leading her to want to dedicate her time, personally and professionally, to Charlotte-area non-profit organizations.

Kelsey lives in Charlotte with her husband, daughter, and two rescue dogs, Petty and Tally - named for Richard Petty and the Talladega Speedway. In her free time, she obsesses over her daughter Hayden, stalks Kacey Musgraves, watches Bravo, cheers for her Mountaineers and her husband’s NC State Wolfpack, plans out her next tattoos, and loves to enjoy a hazy IPA - especially the Hops on One Leg NE IPA!
