Janelle (Duyck) Bovell earned her bachelor of arts degree in politics from Willamette University in 2008. As an undergraduate, Janelle worked as a research assistant for the Dean of Campus Life and was a member of the women's varsity basketball team. After Willamette, Janelle attended law school at Indiana University School of Law in Bloomington, receiving her J.D. in 2014. Following law school, Janelle worked in compliance for Citigroup in New York City and as of December holds the position of Manager, AML Advisory, Financial Crimes Compliance at PayPal. Janelle has been a longtime supporter of Willamette, with her philanthropy reflecting her affinity areas at her alma mater. Past support includes the sponsorship of a locker in the renovated women's basketball team room and substantial gifts for the Robert Hawkinson Student Initiative Fund.
After completing several unpaid internships during her undergraduate studies, Janelle was motivated to help support those students who otherwise may not be able to have an internship experience due to financial need.
