Whitley Wynns has focused majority of her career in community development utilizing quality improvement strategies. Ms. Wynns began her career as a Social Systems Analyst building community capacity for initiatives focused on education, public health and safety for the Indy East Promise Zone. From there, she started working at the Indiana School of Medicine on the Children's Health Improvement Partnership of Indiana team as a Quality Improvement Specialist. For 4 years, Ms. Wynns focused on addressing infant mortality and improving safe sleep through community partnerships with early childhood care and education programs and received her Masters from Benedictine University. She focused on building program capacity, increasing quality and strengthening business practices to improve built environments for families. In 2021, she transitioned to the Fairbanks School of Public Health to join the Grassroots Maternal and Child Health Initiative as the Senior Programs Manager for faith-based partnerships and teen development programs. Through Ms. Wynns' experience with working at the community-level to drive change to improve maternal and child health outcomes, she understands the need for better policies at the local, state and federal levels to create equitable systems for women and children and improve pregnancy outcomes. This has led to Ms. Wynns' most recent endeavor of becoming a J.D. candidate focused on maternal, child and reproductive health.
