2024 Alumna of the Year Award Recipient

For many years, Jen has given back to the Academy and her dedication and volunteerism has been amazing. She has been an integral member of FoNDA, our Upper School parent group. She has served as treasurer, raising much-needed funding for our clubs and co-curricular activities. She is an excellent advocate for both our students and our faculty/staff. She has supported Mission & Ministry with alumni fundraising efforts, has volunteered as a mentor on career day, she has been a parent volunteer for open houses, has assisted with the strategic planning process, and has served on the alumni board. She is an alumna who continuously demonstrates her pride for NDA. Jen has such deep love for the SND mission, the Sisters, and the education that NDA provides that all four of her children have attended the Academy.
Her nominator said, “She lives the hallmarks without even realizing it. From her deep faith, her genuine love for others, her willingness to jump in and help whenever she can without the need for accolades. She would give the shirt off her back to anyone in need.”
