Jennifer Tunning

Director, Clinical Services & Interim Vice President, Programs Candelen

What motivates you?

As a social worker, I strive to ensure all people have an opportunity to be happy, healthy, and safe. Whether it’s through intervention, education, research, lobbying, or connection, creating systems and spaces for people to reach their full potential always affirms that I have the best job in the world.

What makes Candelen's mission meaningful to you?

What makes the mission so meaningful to me is the ability to provide services to children and their families that allow them to transform from surviving to thriving. It’s truly exciting thinking about what the world will look like someday if all people as children get to achieve their brightest outlook possible.
