Brandi Funk joins UW Department of Orthopedics and Rehabilitation as new Advancement Manager

Brandi Funk officially joined our department on Monday, April 24, taking on the role previously held by Joe Greene.

A highly successful, seasoned development professional, Brandi comes to us from the Wisconsin Foundation and Alumni Association (WFAA), where she has served as a Development Director for the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences since 2018. Before her time at the WFAA, she spent over six years at Wisconsin Public Radio, first as a Senior Development Specialist and then as a Planned Giving Officer.

In addition, Brandi founded and served as both executive director and chief development officer of HEADRUSH, a non-profit that established the HEADRUSH Brain Tumor Research Professorship, an endowed professorship at the UW Foundation housed in the Department of Human Oncology.

We are excited to welcome Brandi to the team and cannot wait to see what she accomplishes here at UW!
