Director of Development
Assistant Director of Development
The WES Development Office is a beehive of activity, 12 months of the year. The capstones of our mission are the Annual Fund Campaign in the fall and the Auction Gala in early spring, each one raising funds that are critical to the WES mission each year. In addition, the team fosters community in many ways:
Bronwyn brings years of experience as a WES volunteer to her new role of Director of Development in July 2023. A WES parent since 2017, she has two sons in Grade 4 and 6 and has served as a class parent, parent ambassador, auction committee volunteer, and she also co-chaired the 2022 auction, Under the Tuscan Sun. We’ve seen her artistic talent come to life as she created colorful sets for a Kindergarten play and gigantic tornado for the Oz-themed Auction, to name a few recent projects. Previously, Bronwyn served as Director of Development for St. Columba’s Episcopal Church, and Director of Advancement for St. Columba’s Nursery School.
Ali joined the WES staff in 2007, is a proud parent of two WES graduates (2009 and 2010) and held volunteer leadership positions at WES, including twice co-chairing the Auction Gala, providing marketing and promotion of the Book Fair, serving as PA Rep, and organizing school-wide events. You can find this St. George’s Society member at nearly every WES event and visiting classrooms, camera in hand, capturing students as they work and play each day. As editor of The WES Magazine, she coordinates content, including class notes for our Alumni.
Na’Kia graduated from WES in 2010 and joined the staff in 2022, thrilled to be back “home.” Her fondest childhood memories are of WES soccer games and amazing study trips to the Bay, the desert southwest, and Europe. WES teachers inspired her to study biology in college, and now she finds herself as colleagues of these talented faculty members. As a WES alumna familiar with our community, she will help expand our alumni program, manage our database, and coordinate events.
Together, the team’s creativity and experience intersect to guide the WES community in its community building as well as fundraising.
