Mogen (Wells) Jarus
2021-2021 Lake County Chamber of Commerce Director
Community Relations & Fund Development Specialist- Sutter Lakeside Hospital
I am an Ohio native, and have lived in Lake County for five years after moving to California to work as Sutter Lakeside Hospital’s Community Relations & Fund Development Coordinator. I have a BA in journalism and history from the University of Kentucky and I’m pursuing my MBA from Missouri State University. My husband and I live on a 3.5-acre hobby farm in Lakeport, where we enjoy the company of 4 chickens, 3 dogs, 2 Nigerian Dwarf goats, and a sleepy farm cat. I feel passionately about developing business in Lake County as a way to offer opportunity and economic development and break the cycle of generational poverty. In my free time, I enjoy the sunshine, being on the water and spending time with my animals. I love Lake County and feel adopted by a community of wonderful people who care about where they live. I particularly enjoy community events (during non-pandemic years), such as Street Dances, Taste of Lakeport, and Concerts in the Park. I particularly love the Kelseyville Pear Festival, as I met my husband there on a blind date in 2017. I hope to influence business-friendly policies and practices and offer development help to small businesses around the lake.
