Jacqueline Whelan Lambert joined the Caneille Regional Development board January 2018.
Jacqueline graduated magna cum laude from Vanderbilt University in 2007. A recipient of the Holmes-Abernathy Merit Scholarship, she received a Bachelor’s Degree in Human and Organizational Development with double major in Spanish. She obtained her Master of Nursing degree at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee in 2016.
She currently works as a Senior Portfolio Manager as well as a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) Nurse at the Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. At Children’s, Jacqueline is responsible for account management and project portfolio oversight for several key areas of the health system including primary care, marketing and communications, with a focus on digital health strategy. Jacqueline also works part-time as a NICU nurse at Children’s and loves the time she spends caring for babies and educating caregivers.
Jacqueline is a member of 100+ Women Who Care Milwaukee, a group of local women who support not for profit organizations in the greater Milwaukee area. Her inspiration for joining the CRDF board came from the passion Oliver and Rebecca shared for the organization while their daughters were cared for at the Children’s NICU, as well as a mission trip to Ecuador in 2006 where she saw the impact of sponsoring and providing an education to under-served populations to help overcome the cycle of poverty.
