Byron Jackson

Executive Director

Over the past 30 years, Byron Jackson has created an impressive track record of community training on many subjects, including cultural diversity and team building. These experiences have led him to develop a “special sauce” of experiential learning, humor, music, and fun that creates a safe environment where people can deal with their differences and share who they truly are. His skills in working within diverse groups, along with his extensive community contacts, his humor, and his odd assortment of clothing, have touched the lives of many around the world.

Byron holds a degree in social work from the University of Oklahoma. After graduation, Byron worked as a family and adolescent counselor at the Norman Alcohol Information Center and also served as youth director at St. John’s Episcopal Church in Norman. He has trained in group process with Virginia Satir (People Making), Don Lowery (True Colors), and many other innovators of group work. He joined Possibilities, Inc., twenty years ago as a Training and Facilitation Specialist, and was named Executive Director in April 2019.

Byron’s goal for the mission work of Possibilities is always the same - to create safe environments where people can find their own voices. Byron believes humans are social beings, meaning we work best in interaction with one another. His mission with Possibilities is to help humans connect and work toward common goals. A recent focus has become helping people talk about issues of race and injustice in safe spaces to help them move from oppression and anger to healing, harmony, and creating new paths for the future.

Kelly Johnson

Associate Director

Kelly started her relationship with Possibilities landing fresh from New York City as their next door neighbor in Mesta Park. After a few years getting to know the group and discovering how much the organization's mission and values aligned with her own, she joined the team. As a Community Development Specialist, she is able to draw from her background in marketing from her past life in New York working in the non-profit theater arena. Though she's from Houston originally, we don't hold it against her - she's an Okie, through and through. When she's not working with participants and helping make OKC a better place to be, she enjoys the antics of her two sweet kids and humorous husband.
