Candy Carter

Data and Finance Director

Candy Carter joined the Jumping Mouse team in March 2012. After several years of owning and operating her own financial and business management service, she had decided that it was time to move back to her roots and join a nonprofit organization’s team. She brings to the agency several years of nonprofit fiscal and human resource experience, as well as flexibility and a “can do” attitude from her many years of independent work for a variety of local clients with broadly differing needs, schedules and scopes of work.

In addition to her work at Jumping Mouse, Candy recently obtained her bachelor of arts with emphasis in philosophy, anthropology and women’s studies from Washington State University. In her free time, Candy enjoys spending with her husband, and three children.

Whitney Friddle

Development Manager

Whitney Friddle joined Jumping Mouse in 2018, her professional background is in public education (Mexico, Spain, and Washington) working in alternative education settings with high needs children and in behavior interventions. Her passion for working with youth and advocating for the needs of a child to lead a healthy life inspired her to obtain her graduate degree from Seattle University in Nonprofit Leadership. With her varied background in volunteerism with nonprofits in Western Washington, and her training from Seattle University, she brings her depth of knowledge for the well-being of children and communicates the impact and depth of work done at Jumping Mouse in our advocacy and fundraising efforts.

In her free time she enjoys being in the great outdoors (on land, sea or sky), making progress on her never ending stack of books “to be read”, and frequenting coffee shops.
