Meet Jennifer LaBrie
In autumn 2022, Jennifer LaBrie was named interim vice president of University Advancement at Seattle Pacific University.
Ms. LaBrie joined SPU’s University Advancement in 2011, and most recently, had served as assistant vice president for university advancement. Now with more than a decade of experience, her other roles have encompassed development research, information strategy, operations, and donor development, and included the $6.2 million Alexander and Adelaide Hall fundraising and the School of Health Sciences 6 Nickerson campaign.
A two-time alumna of SPU, Ms. LaBrie received her bachelor's degree from SPU in 1992 and a master of science in 1995, giving her a deep understanding of our donors, staff, faculty, and alumni. She believes that our ability to nurture longstanding relationships with alumni and donors, along with data-informed and strategic decision-making, provide SPU with an opportunity to serve our students through giving now more than ever.
Prior to her work with SPU, Ms. LaBrie held positions in college admissions and in marriage and family therapy. She has also completed the CCCU’s Leadership Development Institute, a selective yearlong program for leaders from across the country.
