After earning her English degree at Penn State, Jinnie Chapel became a computer programmer for Insurance Company of North America, then the second largest commercial insurer in the world. She later became a stay-at-home mother who, as her two sons progressed through school, took on a variety of part-time posts before embarking on a sixteen-year career with Booz Allen Hamilton. While there, she performed several duties, including senior aide to a partner, contract management, project management, proposal preparation, organization development and management, and finally senior associate. She later became a partner at LeapFrog Solutions, a Fairfax, Virginia-based strategic marketing communications firm. Now retired, Jinnie has been involved in a variety of volunteer efforts, both before and after retirement. With a major philanthropic pledge in 2009, Jinnie and her spouse, John, a business executive and entrepreneur, created the Virginia Todd Chapel Executive Internship Program Endowment, which provides recognition and financial assistance to outstanding undergraduate Liberal Arts students who are participating in an internship. Jinnie and John enjoy visiting with the students who have been part of the Chapel Executive Internship Program.
