As a senior project associate at McKinley Advisors, Jen Johnson supports the consulting team by providing project management and operational support to ensure client projects run smoothly.
Prior to joining McKinley Advisors in 2016, Jen interned and worked at several different nonprofit organizations, primarily focusing her work on resource development. Most recently she worked as the development associate at a national education-focused nonprofit organization located in Washington, D.C. In this role, Jen was responsible for increasing revenue from the organization’s annual gala, growing the organization’s individual donor base and awarding grants to improve educational outcomes in the United States. Jen’s diverse background in nonprofits has helped her to understand the intense challenges associations face day-to-day and has amplified her passion for empowering these mission-driven organizations to succeed.
A North Carolina native, Jen graduated in 2014 from UNC-Chapel Hill with a B.A. in Global Studies. In her free time, she enjoys backpacking across the country, seeing live music and listening to podcasts while knitting hats, scarves and the occasional pair of socks.
