Betty Griffin Center has promoted long-time employee Kenlie Kubart to the position of development director at the non-profit organization.

Kubart, who has served as event coordinator at Betty Griffin Center since 2016, will be responsible for fundraising activities – including grant writing, sponsorships and donor relations activities.

“Given Kenlie’s past success managing our events and collaborating with sponsors, including our Adopt-A-Family Program, and her commitment to our mission to help survivors of domestic abuse and sexual violence, we are very pleased to see her move into this new position at the agency,” said Betty Griffin Center CEO Kelly Franklin.

A resident of St. Augustine, Kubart previously served as the director of fundraising for the Delta Gamma sorority, interned at the University of North Florida Office of Parent and Family programs and worked as a marketing manager in the hospitality industry before joining the Betty Griffin Center staff.

“I’m excited to continue working in the development role for this agency,” Kubart said. “As an employee over the last six years, I’ve seen the positive impact our services have had on many lives – and I look forward to sustaining our mission to bring hope and healing those that need us in our community.”

Kubart received an Associates of Arts degree from St. Johns River State College in 2014 and a Bachelor of Science degree in communications and public relations from the University of North Florida in 2016. During her tenure at Betty Griffin Center, she has also completed several training courses on domestic violence and sexual abuse in areas including primary prevention, Green Dot Bystander Training, advocacy core training and youth mental health first aid.
