Advancement Officer

It has been my pleasure working with Macdonald alumni since 2007, developing and building relationships through special programs, events such as Homecoming and reunion class giving projects. I manage the student programming platform that consists of workshops and seminars on leadership, learning outside the classroom, engagement, as well as events that bring alumni and students together for Roundtable Mentoring Discussions and opportunities. The Seeds of Change project is also under my mandate allowing me to work closely with our student groups. I enjoy meeting Macdonald graduates, making that connection and helping our students transition to alumni.
