Current Staff Members

Linda Trenn

Executive Director

I’m Linda Trenn, and I am first and foremost a mother of three wonderful kids, Nathan, Amanda and Kyle; and Mamaw to the loves of my life- I have been in the healthcare field most of my life, and my love of life and helping people led me to Pregnancy Center West over 2 years ago. I started as The Client Service Manager, and then moved into the Executive Director role last August. This has been an awesome journey thus far, and I have been blessed with a wonderful staff and many great Advocates to help these women to choose life and help them to improve their lives, so we change the culture and the future to one day be abortion free. I give God all the glory.

Jame Jirovec

Development Director

I’m Jame Jirovec, the Development Director at Pregnancy Center West. The devastation of abortion echoes through generations, touching lives far beyond the immediate. It’s this ripple effect that fuels my passion to raise funds and combat its rise. With a diverse professional background, I’ve seized the opportunity to channel my expertise for this cause. Join me in empowering women facing unplanned pregnancies to choose life. Let’s make a real impact together.

Nick Luken

Grants Officer

I’m Nick Luken, and I’m PCW’s Grant Officer. I’m a relatively new husband and father, with a son who’s nearly two and another child on the way. Before I came to PCW, I had five years of experience writing grants and doing some other fundraising work, and I love putting my skills to work for an organization with such a crucial mission. As a cradle Catholic who has been pro-life my whole life but perpetually unsure how God was calling me to support the pro-life movement, I am grateful to be able to support our life-affirming work every day.

Maribeth Gieseke

Nurse Coordinator

a proud member of the St. Maximillian Kolbe parish in Liberty Township is our new Nurse Coordinator. Growing up on the west side in St. Dominic parish and graduating from Seton High School, her roots run deep in the community. For 37 years, she’s been a dedicated nurse, but her true calling lies in being pro-life. Today, alongside her husband Brian, three grown kids, and standard poodle, she finds immense joy in using her nursing skills to support moms and babies.

Marybeth Young

Client Education Manager

I’m Marybeth Young, and in February 2022, I joined Pregnancy Center West (PCW) to manage BrightCourse education. With a background in nursing at TriHealth and teaching college students, I sought a meaningful outlet for my skills and passion for helping others. Introduced to PCW through volunteering with my children, I initially pursued a role as an Ultrasound tech but found my calling in leading BrightCourse. Over the past two years, with the support of volunteers and staff, BrightCourse has flourished into a vital Resource and Educational Parenting program. Working with young women from diverse backgrounds has been an honor, and being part of the PCW team is a true gift. The dedication and compassion of my colleagues, driven by a desire to share Christ’s love, inspire me every day.

Kate Rewwer

Ultrasound Technician

Kate Rewwer is a registered nurse who obtained her BSN from Mt. St. Joseph University in 1997. She has a background in labor and delivery, post-partum, outpatient surgery and community nursing. She is wife and mother to 4 children, ages 17-25 and has discovered a passion for accompanying women in difficult pregnancies and empowering them in the decision to choose life.

Sue Ulmer

Bookkeeper

Meet Sue Ulmer, a cornerstone of Pregnancy Center West since 1999. Initially joining as a bookkeeper while her husband Steve served as a client advocate, Sue has seamlessly transitioned through the tenures of 7 Executive Directors over her 25 years with us. Her dedication extends beyond her role, as she finds immense joy in collaborating with our passionate volunteers who tirelessly support life for the unborn. Sue cherishes her time outside of work with her three adult children, Ryan, Kyle (married to Mollie), and Lauren (married to Nik), and her two beloved grandchildren (Quinn & Adeline). In every aspect of her life, Sue embodies our mission of empowering women and safeguarding the sanctity of life.

Maddie Clemens

Office Coordinator

I’m Maddie Clemens, the Office Coordinator for PCW. From the heartlands of Wisconsin, I now call Walton, Ky home. As the Office Coordinator here, I’m dedicated to helping women in need, blending my faith with action. From assisting both the client and development side of the office needs to organizing files, I keep things running smoothly. My newest passion is the resource assistance program, ensuring every pregnant woman leaves here with hope and support!

Sara Reisiger

Outreach Coordinator

“My name is Sara Reisiger and I am one of the School Outreach Coordinators here at PCW where I assist in running our school outreach program, “The Body Matters”. I was born and raised on the Westside of Cincinnati, and currently reside in Delhi where I live with my husband, Matthew. I have been volunteering and working with grade school and high school tweens and teens since my freshman year of college in 2016 and some of my favorite positions have been serving as a Scouting Area Director, Catholic Youth Minister, and Junior High Religion Teacher. I was inspired to accept a position at Pregnancy Center West presenting “The Body Matters” because of how much I myself was convicted and healed as a high school teen by St. John Paul II’s Theology of the Body in which he deeply dives into the dignity of every human person. If every student could understand how much they are worth in the eyes of God, I truly believe our world would be changed.”

Jillian Leonard

I’m Jillian Leonard and my job at PCW is with the Outreach Program, “The Body Matters,” for local grade schools and high schools. I am a Cincinnati native, with a previous background as a nurse in Cincinnati Children’s Emergency Room. I have a history of working with students, from teaching cycle charting to high school girls, to running theater camps for grade schoolers. John Paul II’s Theology of the Body was the reason I fell in love with Jesus and His Church, and I believe His calling for me is to pass on this beautiful truth of real love and beauty. My burning desire is for our young people to fall deeply in love with Christ, and to realize His infinite desire for them. When I am not working, I can be found cooking, reading a good fantasy book, hiking, running, spending time outdoors, and hanging with my family and friends.
