Management and Staff

The Arthritis National Research Foundation Staff is committed to finding a cure for arthritis. As we grow so does the Arthritis National Research Foundation staff. Currently we’re small administratively, but that allows us to ensure that 91 cents of every dollar donated to this organization is placed into research programs.

Director of Marketing & Communications

 

With a 20+ year career working in higher education, corporate, sports and nonprofit marketing and communications, Jenn Casey accepted the role of ANRF’s Director of Marketing & Communications encapsulated by the growth opportunity and drawn by the organization’s purpose and impact.

 

Approaching her role with a focus on integrated marketing and communications, Jenn works across the organization to ensure consistency in the way ANRF looks to its audience and the way it sounds. In her role, she is responsible for managing and building ANRF’s brand visually and through communicating its story to a variety of audiences and communications channels.

 

During the first part of her career, Jenn worked in sports and corporate communications at the Portland Trail Blazers, Nike, Inc. and the Professional Bowlers Association, honing her skills in media relations and building and leveraging relationships to build brands and personalities. She then pivoted to higher education when she led the communications at the University of Oregon (UO) Alumni Association during a time of growth and helping launch the campaign for the Ford Alumni Center. She briefly left higher education but returned to lead the marketing and communication at the College of Business at Oregon State University (OSU) where she was part of the development team that raised $100 million for the college during the Campaign for OSU.

 

The most rewarding part of Jenn’s career includes working with undergraduate students in her roles at OSU and UO, most significantly during her time as a graduate student at UO. Jenn continues to spend time working with students and currently serves as the Board Chair for the Emerald Media Group (the student media organization for the UO). She enjoys spending time with family and friends, and traveling, hiking, running and discovering new trails, especially those leading to sunrises and sunsets. In addition, she loves sports, especially college, because of the stories and humans behind the athletes and ultimately the ability sports have to change lives.
