Tina Bruenning joined the Pat Tillman Foundation as Scholarships Manager in October 2015 after recently earning her degree from Roosevelt University. Born and raised in the suburbs of Chicago, Tina’s parents both served in the Army National Guard, instilling in her a life of service to others.
Prior to joining the Pat Tillman Foundation staff, Tina spent time in the work force at St. Alexius Medical Center in the Emergency Room unit, served as a Teacher’s Aide, volunteer in the community and most importantly, dedicated her time as a mother to her two children. Tina has always put others before herself, including raising her family first before making the decision to pursue her degree full-time in 2013.
In December 2015, Tina will participate in Roosevelt University’s graduation ceremony with her son Nick after earning a degree in Hospitality and Tourism with a concentration in meetings and events. Married to her husband Matt for 22 years, Tina enjoys traveling and exploring new places and spending time with her adult children.
