“In my job, I love the people, both internal and external. As a fundraiser, I know that relationships are key to doing my job well. I enjoy meeting our alumni on the West Coast and in St. Louis and learning their stories, and I like working internally with UA colleagues as well as our colleagues in Olin.”
