Native Angeleno Jesse Norgaard joined MHAS in 2009 as a volunteer. Later that year, he was hired as a part-time Administrative Assistant. Within a year, he was working full-time in that position, and he now serves as our Intake Coordinator. He is a second-generation employee at MHAS, following in his mother’s footsteps. Aside from his normal duties and the many hats he wears around the office, he proudly serves on our Safety and Security Committee.
When we asked Jesse what he loved most about working here, he stated “I find myself very fortunate to work alongside like-minded professionals who work tirelessly to provide vital services to the community. This is more than just a job to me.This is where I’m supposed to be.”
When he’s not working, Jesse enjoys time with his family. Whether they are playing sports, hiking, or going to a Dodger game, they are always active and creating a lifetime of memories.
