I am The College of St. Scholastica's vice president for College Advancement. I come to St. Scholastica from the Minnesota State University, Mankato, where I served as associate vice president for university advancement for five years. I also worked in fundraising at Gustavus Adolphus College in St. Peter, MN, Carleton College in Northfield, MN, and Gettysburg College in Pennsylvania, as well as at the national non-profit organization Scholarship America.
I have over 25 years of fundraising and advancement experience, including success at private colleges.
I lead St. Scholastica's fundraising efforts in the areas of major gifts, annual giving, corporate relations, planned giving, and foundations and government relations, and I am also responsible for alumni relations.
"I have been impressed by how creative and entrepreneurial the College is, while always keeping the core mission and values as the foundation of where we are going. I have also been pleased to see how proud people connected to St. Scholastica are of the College. There's great pride in the kind of place it is, what it offers to students, and how students are prepared for life after St. Scholastica. I look forward to meeting many alumni and friends of the College as well as faculty and students, and working with them to further their dreams and aspirations for The College of St. Scholastica."
