Jenna Ellis

Jenna comes to Bronson Health Foundation with seven years of non-profit development experience; specifically in healthcare-based fundraising. Most recently, she served as the development manager at Oaklawn Hospital.

Ellis found a passion for development work while studying at Michigan State University (Go Green!) as she wanted to align her personal mission of helping others with her skills of relationship-building and fundraising. After moving to Racine, Wisconsin to work for Ascension All-Saints Hospital, she decided to advance her education further at the University of Wisconsin – Parkside to obtain her Master of Business Administration which she successfully completed in 2019.

Jenna and her husband moved to Kalamazoo in 2020. When she is not working, she enjoys cooking, reading, traveling, volunteering, and spending time with her friends and family. She and her husband have one adorable dog, Piper, and are expecting their first “human daughter” in June of 2022. Jenna is thrilled to be joining the BHF team and cannot wait to connect with those who want to help make a difference in the Kalamazoo area.

Jenna can be reached at (269) 341-8655 or
