President’s Message



As the President of the Junior League of Cleveland, I am humbled to be leading the team that is charting our course for a new decade. I am working alongside dedicated Board of Directors members Jessica Grashoff, Secretary, Karri King, Treasurer, Anne Fleming, Executive Vice President, Ashley Jenkins, Chair of the Nominating Committee, as well as Kathryn Terrell, Amy Boyd-Kirksey, and Jennifer Dieringer. Heartfelt thanks go out to our past leaders for their tireless efforts and passionate support of the League.

Our Mission is at the heart of all we do: to promote voluntarism, to develop the potential of women, and to improve the community through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. By adhering to this Mission, we have improved the lives of women and children in the Greater Cleveland community and look forward to continuing to learn and to innovate to meet the unique needs of a changing world.

For over 108 years, the Junior League of Cleveland has empowered women volunteers to improve the lives of women and children in Cleveland. From our own community projects to collaborations with partner organizations, the JLC has addressed some of our community’s greatest challenges and our current issue impact area is improving outcomes for youth aging out of foster care. We are inclusive to all women who want to make a difference and together we are UNSTOPPABLE!

Yours in Service,


Danielle Sobel
President, 2019-2021
