Jenny Miller, Inupiaq, is originally from Nome. She is part of Philanthropy Northwest’s Momentum Fellowship program in partnership with Rasmuson Foundation. The program is designed to prepare professionals from underrepresented communities for careers in philanthropy with a focus on diversity, equity and inclusion. At the Foundation, Jenny works with the program staff on processing grant awards and other grant related projects. Jenny brings experience in communications, public relations and grant writing. She has worked in both the nonprofit and private sectors, with a focus on Alaska Native organizations.

Jenny attained a bachelor of fine arts in photomedia from University of Washington’s School of Art and a bachelor of arts in American Indian studies—also from the University of Washington. Jenny is a Fulbright Canada Killam Fellow alumna. During the Killam Fellowship program, she studied at Western University in London, Ontario, Canada as a visiting visual arts and First Nations studies student.

She is also an artist. Jenny’s art is concept-driven—packed with themes of Indigenous histories, current realities, decolonization, and identity—to encourage dialogue on important topics and issues in aims to defeat stereotypes and support healing.

Jenny is involved in the local community. She is a co-founder of Aurora Pride, an Indigenous lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and Two-Spirit (LGBTQ2+) support group in Anchorage, a volunteer on the youth program committee for Identity Alaska, a statewide LGBTQ nonprofit based in Anchorage, and a volunteer juror for the Anchorage International Film Festival.

In her spare time, she enjoys traveling, cooking, hiking, visiting art galleries and museums, and sharing time with friends, family, her partner, and dog.
