Client Service Specialist
Polly onboarded with the firm in May 2021, bringing a background centered around non-profit organizations and charitable giving. In her role as Client Services Specialist, she’ll be a part of Walkner Condon’s international side that works with U.S. expatriates.
A UW-Madison alumna and Madison native, Polly most recently served as the Legacy Giving Manager at PBS Wisconsin from 2018 to May 2021. Prior to moving back to Madison, she spent three years with The Rotary Foundation as Development Coordinator Supervisor and, before that, Donor Relations Specialist. As part of her seven-year stay in Chicago, Polly also worked for Lincoln Park Zoo for three years in donor relations and auxiliary board roles. After earning degrees in History and Environmental Studies from the UW, she began her post-grad career as an Institutional Advancement Intern for the prestigious Field Museum.
Polly and her husband, Bobby, live in Madison and recently became proud parents, with the arrival of their daughter, Hadley, in February 2021. Their dog, Porter, is still adapting to having to share the spotlight. Polly loves running, hiking, baking, and attending concerts. She’s seen DMB – the Dave Matthews Band, for the uninitiated – no fewer than 40 times.
