Trustee since 2016
Jeremy Kredlo is originally from Northwest Indiana, where he pursued a career in Information Technology Project Management. He is currently employed at BECU as a Senior Manager in the IT Department. He holds a Master’s and Bachelor’s degree in Information Systems. His journey into advocacy work began in 2008, when his granddaughter Kylee suffered extensive brain damage at birth from a loss of oxygen. Since that time, Jeremy has worked with a number of organizations in both Indiana and Washington to ensure that Kylee receives access to services and therapies to ensure that she has the best quality of life possible. Having cared for Kylee as her custodial guardian since she was 8 months old, he recognizes the challenges involved in raising a child with disabilities, and effectively advocating for their rights. In order to help others, he volunteers at a number of non-profit organizations, including the PlusOne Foundation, the Father’s Network, and as a Helping Parent with the Parent to Parent Network. Jeremy is passionate about helping parents and caregivers to understand that they are not alone and that they have resources at their disposal to help them through their journey, and about ensuring that children with intellectual and developmental disabilities are limited only by their abilities, rather than by their opportunities.
