JD Ribali is the Director of Business Development for FlourishNow. JD brings over 20 years of business and entrepreneurial experience to FlourishNow. In 1997, with just $500, JD launched Green and Clean, LLC., which currently operates year-round, providing employment opportunities and work experience for more than a dozen full-time employees. Green and Clean strives to improve the lives of employees – many of whom became employed through a partnership with his church’s recovery and prison ministry. His experience with hiring, training, and mentoring employees led him to become involved with FlourishNow’s Work2Win program where he also now serves as a job coach and mentor. At FlourishNow JD works to create strategic partnerships with businesses to help expand employment opportunities nationwide through job fairs, employment workshops, hiring events and community outreach.
