Bio:
Salt Lake City native Jen Voros is the Director of Institutional Advancement. In her role, she is responsible for leading the fundraising and community building efforts at The McGillis School. She joined the Advancement team from the Waterford School where she was the Director of the Waterford Fund and Alumni Relations. Prior to her work at Waterford, she served as Associate Director of Development at Colorado Academy in Denver.

 

Jen has over a decade of experience in alumni relations, donor relations, stewardship, major gift, and annual giving in both independent schools and higher education. Jen has a BA in Theatre History and Communications from the University of Puget Sound in Tacoma, Washington, and a Masters in Nonprofit Management from Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio.  

 

When she isn’t working to support The McGillis School’s mission, Jen can be found hiking in Glacier National Park, snorkeling in the reefs off the Hawaiian Islands, reading Shakespeare’s Pastoral Plays, or rooting for the Cleveland Indians. She and her husband, Jeremy, are the proud parents of three McGillis Magpies.

Which McGillis Value do you most appreciate?
I appreciate the value of Tzedakah - Giving to Others. Learning to give to others, to put others first, is one of the noblest acts we can perform as humans. At McGillis, we teach our children Tzedakah to reinforce the importance of community and to prepare our children to make our world a better place.

 

My favorite McGillis tradition is:
Family Group Lunch

 

My favorite McGillis lunch is:
Chicken Gyros

 

A powerful moment I experienced at school:
Reading Othello in 8th Grade and being introduced to Shakespeare for the first time.

 

What is your superpower?
My superpower is storytelling. I collect and retell the stories of our community to help inspire giving.
