Meet the Staff

Jennifer Kuzo, President

I love the creativity involved in my day-to-day tasks. Marketing, advertising, and promotions all featuring the best of the Lebanon Valley help to shine a positive light on our county and our people. 

My ideal day in the Lebanon Valley includes a bike ride on the Rail Trail, breakfast at the Porch & Pantry, and a concert or theatre production in Mount Gretna… and picking up farm fresh berries and peaches at one of our roadside stands along the way!

Some of my passions include playing the piano, swimming, golf, traveling the globe, and of course being Gigi to three adorable grandkids.

Fun Fact: I once threw out the first ball at a Phillies Game.

Jane Yorty, Event Manager

As the event manager for Visit Lebanon Valley, I love getting to interact with the community and local business owners, both in planning and hosting events. I’ve spent 25 years of my life living in Philly, but Lebanon is my hometown, and I am so happy to be back again to see and share all that I love about this area.

My go-to in the Lebanon Valley is lunch at the Bluebird Inn. My favorite place in the Valley is not as much a place as it is a view. As you crest the south mountain on Route 72 coming north into Lebanon, the entire Valley comes into view. It has always been a sign for me that I am home!

I am passionate about cultivating a creative community for artists, which carries into my work at Visit Lebanon Valley in creating community-minded events.

Fun Fact: The Queen of England waved at me once while I was visiting Oxford!

Darby Seymour, Public Relations Manager

I am the public relations manager for Visit Lebanon Valley. In this role, I spend much of my time writing press releases, blogs, and content for our website.

One of my favorite spots in the county is the Lebanon Valley Rail Trail. Whether with a friend (two- or four-legged) or alone, I love how easy it is to get lost in a conversation or the thoughts in your head along the path. I also love that you can’t actually get lost because it is a straight path! 😀

I have a big passion for learning, and I love gaining more understanding about everything that I can. I am also passionate about crosswords, but don’t ask me to do the Sunday crossword—I am not that passionate.

Leilani Rooney, Social Media Manager

Hi there! I’m Visit Lebanon Valley’s social media manager. I regularly posts content in the form of reels and other content, manage the website’s event calendar, and keep visitors informed about the different events happening year round in the community.

A personal favorite out of my reponsilitlies would have to be composing our newsletter that is sent out every two months or so. It includes upcoming events, featured promotions, and other notable blogs and content coming from the Welcome Center! (You can subscribe to it at the bottom of this page 😉)

My favorite place to eat locally is Trattoria Fratelli, and my favorite activity in The Valley, hands down, is picking fresh flowers at Royal Oaks Farm!
