Jenny Whelan

Assistant Director for Advancement

I am passionate about the power of a UW Nursing education to foster opportunity and improve healthcare for all. A Husky undergraduate alumna myself, I believe strongly in the power of a UW education to open doors and change lives. As Assistant Director for Advancement, I build relationships with Nursing donors and alumni to raise support for Nursing students, research, and faculty. I also help to manage the school’s annual giving, stewardship, and alumni outreach efforts. Before I joined the School of Nursing team, I managed fundraising and outreach activities for the UW Department of Psychology. Connecting people with causes they care about drives my work every day; I am thrilled to help Nursing donors and alumni change the world through their support of the School. Outside of work, you can find me cooking, being active outdoors, reading, and exploring the San Juan Islands.

Education:

Bachelor of Arts, Sociology, University of Washington

Certificate in Fundraising Management, University of Washington

What do you love about the UW School of Nursing?

The power of an education from such an esteemed institution as UW Nursing creates endless opportunities for both individuals and communities – nurses are counted on to provide life-changing patient care every single day. I am honored to act as a steward of the groundbreaking research and education that UW School of Nursing provides.
