Jenn joined Offord in January 2017, but in fact had been bringing her exceptional communications skills and fundraising experience to Offord clients since 2013. As a communications associate with the firm, Jenn was the lead writer on a number of Offord’s Cases for Support, and acted as a consultant on a variety of communications-related projects for Offord clients, including Rugby Canada, the Mackenzie Health Foundation, Kids Help Phone, Let’s Talk Science, the University of Ottawa, Concordia University and the McMichael Art Gallery. She now provides leadership in Offord’s Communications Practice, as well as fundraising and communications support to clients such as Michael Garron Hospital Foundation, VGH and UBC Foundation, Athol Murray College of Notre Dame, and Autism Speaks Canada.
Together with her writing skills, Jenn offers our clients the insight and experience required to create successful fundraising communications strategies and materials such as Cases for Support, Student Recruitment Strategies, Communications Audits, and Organizational Planning. In addition, she is on Offord magazine’s editorial team, and in 2017 served as the editor in chief.
Prior to becoming a consultant in 2011, Jenn worked at Greenwood College School, the University of Toronto and the National Ballet of Canada. She began her fundraising career in 1994 as a McConnell Fellow at McMaster University.
