Jen Thielen

Nebraska Children’s development and advancement efforts now have a new face. Jennifer Thielen of Omaha has taken over the top development spot at the foundation, and is now working to secure partners in the organization’s mission to create positive change for children through community engagement.

“The amazing thing about Jen is that she has a profound understanding of our work to prevent abuse, close the educational achievement gap, and help foster kids transition successfully to adulthood,” said Kelly Medwick, Nebraska Children’s Chief of Staff. “And our partners see that. They also love being around her because she’s such a warm, welcoming person.”

Thielen was previously the director of Project Employment, a program of Nebraska Children that provided former foster youth with critical employment skills and the opportunity to secure a well-paying job.

“I loved the work I did with Project Employment,” said Thielen. “I’m even more excited to bring partners into the mix who will support all the outstanding work happening at Nebraska Children.”

Thielen’s background in hospitality and management has uniquely suited her for this role of serving the needs of our partners. Everyone at Nebraska Children is thrilled to have Thielen in this new role, and is looking forward to supporting her continued success in helping to cultivate the good life for all of Nebraska kids.
