What we love most about Champaign here at CCP is the community of incredible people we get to work with. This month, we interviewed a few great women involved with That’s What She Said (some of them are CCP members!), a one-night live event that raises women’s voices through the power of storytelling, to ask what they love most about Champaign.


Jenette Jurczyk, National Director of The She Said Project and Director of Operations at One Main Management

Jenette moved back to Champaign in 2009 to marry her college sweetheart and start their family. She got involved in The She Said Project and became National Director in 2019. “I love how many women in this community will come together to support other women. Champaign-Urbana boasts some incredible women-owned businesses and we get to work with many of them to help uplift and empower the women in our community.”






Kelly Hill, Speaker at That’s What She Said 2020, Executive Director of the C-U Schools Foundation, and Club Manager at The Point Fencing Club

Kelly moved to Champaign over 25 years ago looking for the “right size city” to raise a family. What she found and loves is “a culturally and environmentally responsive community; one where people demonstrate their investment by rolling up their sleeves, meeting their neighbors, and giving time and treasure to initiatives that lift everyone up in our community.”





Mariah Madison, Speaker at That’s What She Said 2020, Executive Director of Nannyville, VP of Black Chamber of Commerce

Mariah moved to Champaign in 2016. “I love that Champaign is a supportive community that embraces and celebrates a multitude of cultures.” Mariah’s always been business-savvy, founding Nannyville in 2018 and Buy Black Chambana in 2019, which have both become great resources for Champaign.
