Director of Stewardship & Donor Appreciation
Why I Wear Green
Although I am not an alumna, I understand the loyalty behind those who are. There is a rooted culture and community here that supports one another long after graduation. I am honored to be a part of it!
Jenn’s knack for improving processes, capturing donor impact and building bridges makes her a key component of our Stewardship Team. This team of three is behind the events, reports, videos and other creative ways that show donors and UND alumni around the world our true appreciation.
Jenn's motto is, “Wherever you are, be all there” (Jim Elliot). She enjoys adventure, keeping up with her friends across the country, running around after her three young boys, attending small town events and camping in the Black Hills.
