It has been my great privilege to be a part of the Macalester community since 1992. As a member of the Advancement team I have the opportunity to participate in furthering Macalester's mission every day. Through our outreach to alumni, parents and friends of the college, we facilitate a network of connections and support that provides access for prospective students, strengthens the academic experience, builds a conduit to success after graduation, and provides a meaningful, lifelong connection between alumni, donors and the college.

As Associate Vice President of Advancement and Campaign Operations, I partner with the Vice President overseeing the goals and planning for the Advancement division. Advancement operations create structure, information management and coordination for the critical revenue generated through fundraising, the important cultivation and networking of alumni, and the outcomes data and stories that help position the college as a global leader in education. We connect with alumni and donors worldwide, but equally important is the alumni engagement built on campus, where students observe and embed their understanding of this important, lifelong relationship.
