Director, Alumni and Gift Records

“My service here is more than just a job.”

I am often the first or second contact donors have with Swarthmore College. I enjoy the opportunity to connect with different constituents, including alumni, and to let them know how much they are appreciated.

The fact that the College values its employees—and that we provide our students with the best learning experience—makes my service here more than just a job.  I have opportunities throughout the year to better myself—become more skilled at my job, learn new technology, or gain insight into best practices.

I work behind the scenes, but I am always delighted to meet in person alumni, parents, and friends who visit campus. I find their generosity, interest, and support of liberal arts education to be most inspirational.
