Jelena Krum, Church Administrator
Jelena ‘J’ Krum grew up attending United Methodist churches in Ohio and Virginia. She graduated from Virginia Tech and moved to Charlotte to join the original counterparty credit team at NationsBanc Capital Markets as a research analyst. She met her husband, Brian, when they were both members of this team. Shortly after, she was invited to join the newly formed Financial Intuitions Credit Policy team as a credit analyst. Switching gears, she was accepted into the technology management training program. After graduating from the program, her roles included developing target organization plans for a division executive during the Bank of America merger, technology project management, and implementing standard project processes.
Jelena then spent several years focused on raising her children, Austin and Lauren. She was a regular tutor and volunteer at area schools and churches during those years. She also worked as a reading and math interventionist at a charter school. In addition to spending time with her family, Jelena enjoys reading, daily long walks with her dog, and yoga.
