Jenn Grasso

Director of Advancement Research
& Prospect Management

Bates College



Jenn Grasso is the first guest to represent Vacationland (Maine)! She talks about how being a first-generation college student motivated her to want to give back. Jenn has since worked in national cause-based nonprofits and universities, in hybrid, fully remote, and in-person settings.

Jenn shares about trying to balance her work and volunteer affiliations – including in her local community - and how freeing it can be to know how much one can take on at any one time. We talk briefly about some lessons Jenn has gleaned from "Ted Lasso," too! She concludes by sharing a quote from her daughter that motivates her: “You be you and do what you do!”
