Name: Jennifer Fleming
Title: Intake and Medical Outreach Manager
Before joining Make-A-Wish Arizona: I spent the last 13 years volunteering, interning, and working in the wonderful world of Child Life. As a Child Life Specialist I supported kids and their families in intensive care and oncology/hematology units, and have helped develop a bereavement program, alongside the Palliative Care team at Phoenix Children’s Hospital.
Education: I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology from California State University, Chico, and a Master of Arts degree in education with an emphasis in Child Life from Mills College.
About me: The last six years I have made Arizona home. I am originally from the San Francisco bay area where I have grown to love the ocean, especially the northern California coast, big red wood trees, old houses, and anything music!
My favorite thing about working at Make-A-Wish Arizona: The heartfelt joy and celebration of life Make-A-Wish wishes bring to such amazing kids and their families!
My wish would be: My wish would be to research my ancestry and visit the countries where my heritage began!
