Jessica Treadwell has been hanging out with us for about five years, but we started paying her to do so in August of 2016. Before her ‘official’ move to the KMUW, Jessica had been helping the station with fundraising efforts through her role as Director of Development at the Wichita State University Foundation. In her new role as Director of Major Gifts for KMUW, Jessica will work to increase philanthropic support of the station to sustain and advance its quality and reach.
If we want to pinpoint where her love of KMUW began, we’d have to look back to a little girl in the backseat of her parent’s car. Captive soon turned to captivated and the rest, as they say, is history.
Jessica earned a degree in music from Pittsburg State University and a master’s degree of science in leadership from Southwestern College. She enjoys spending time with her husband, four kids and two dogs.
