PJP is proud to announce that Shannon Bruno will be joining the staff as our new Director of Advancement. Mrs. Bruno's first official week begins on Monday, November 18, 2019.
Mrs. Bruno brings with her 14 years of experience in Development and Alumni Relations in both the University and public sectors.
Most recently Mrs. Bruno served as the Director of Development for Family Service of Chester County, a 72 year old nonprofit, health and human service agency. She has also held positions at Gwynedd-Mercy University, The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, and The School of Medicine of the University of Pennsylvania.
Mrs. Bruno has extensive experience in many areas of development, including alumni engagement and Board volunteer management. In her previous positions, Mrs. Bruno has been a member of the Board Development Committee and Alumni Committee.
During her time at Family Service Mrs. Bruno has been responsible for all Development related activities including the Annual Giving campaign, grant-writing, event management and marketing and public relations.
In her previous Alumni Relations positions at both Gwynedd-Mercy University and The University of Pennsylvania, Mrs. Bruno was responsible for Alumni Reunion programming, event planning and management, and alumni engagement.
Mrs. Bruno grew up in Montgomery and Delaware Counties where she attended a diocesan grade school, and then Merion Mercy Academy for secondary education. Mrs. Bruno and her husband, Dave, reside in Chester County with their two sons, Jack (6) and Nolan (3). Dave works in communications for a higher education theological non-profit, and Jack and Nolan are discovering their love of sports and school as they grow.
As a family they love to travel, enjoy frequent trips to Disney and have already gone international during a trip to Ireland in 2019. They also enjoy the chance to be creative, whether in the kitchen or with a craft project, and find themselves happiest when they can spend time together.
Mrs. Bruno attended the University of Scranton where she majored in Philosophy and minored in Human Services. The Bruno family’s parish is St. Elizabeth in Chester Springs, PA.
