When did you start and what do you do?
I started at UT in October 2018 a development officer with a focus on major gifts. With a portfolio of corporate partners in the Tampa Bay region, as well as UT alumni and friends in central Florida and the greater Atlanta area, I am responsible for the identification, cultivation, solicitation and stewardship of donors in those regions.
What’s the coolest (or most important) trend you see today?
Younger alumni giving back! It’s so great to see the younger generations getting involved whether it’s giving their time or financial support to UT.
What is your favorite thing about working at UT?
I love seeing the impact our office can make on so many students’ college experience!
