Jackie Welsh
Director of Philanthropy & Community Relations


Jackie joined the Northern Light Health Foundation in February 2014 to focus on Northern Light Home Care & Hospice.  Following a career in New York hotel sales and marketing, and several years at home with her children, Jackie was introduced to VNA of Somerset Hills in New Jersey, where she discovered her passion for the elderly. Just a few visits with VNA nurses into the homes of the sick and infirm was all it took.  As their Director of Development and Marketing, Jackie performed numerous VNA tasks.  She coordinated marketing efforts, raised $9.4m for a capital campaign, wrote numerous grants for programs helping people to age in place, initiated an annual giving campaign, and oversaw various events.  Eventually, however, it was time to return to her native New England. Jackie and her husband reside in Kennebunk.
