Where do you work? What is your role at the company?

I am employed by Bellin College, a private college in Green Bay, Wis., that offers bachelor's degrees in nursing and radiologic sciences, along with a master's degree in nursing. My job at the college is the Scholarship and Donor Relations Coordinator, a role that focuses on cultivating and enhancing relationships with donors and managing the college’s scholarship program. My job is centered on providing excellent communication and customer service to college donors, students, alumni and friends. 

Please share some of your education/employment background.

I received a bachelor of science degree in public relations from Northern Michigan University in Marquette, Mich. My work experience prior to Bellin College included a number of public relations and development roles in nonprofit organizations in the Upper Peninsula, including Northern Michigan University, the YMCA of Marquette County, and Child and Family Services of the Upper Peninsula. In my various positions, I was responsible for fundraising, event planning, supervision of staff and volunteers and providing excellent customer service.

Describe your typical day.

My typical day consists of providing correspondence with our donors regarding college news and their giving impact, reading articles on new donor relations and development trends, and working with students and staff through the scholarship application and review processes. It is essential to be current on industry trends, higher education and development best practices, and community events, so I spend a significant amount of time reading, researching and establishing goals and objectives for the advancement of Bellin College.

What do you hope to get out of PRSA?

As a new resident of the Greater Green Bay Area, I hope to gain valuable connections in the public relations field through PRSA who can provide insight into regional community.

Any hobbies?

In my spare time, I enjoy reading, gardening and going on walks with my golden retriever and husband.
