Over recent years we’ve completely shifted our thinking on annual giving, and we’ve become more sophisticated in the “why, how, when” of communicating. We’ve placed annual giving officers on the front lines, engaged the entire campus in fundraising, and made significant impacts on every part of the university. It has been the highlight of my career to lead such a talented group of professionals, and there is STILL much more to do as we take our program to higher levels in this campaign.

I enjoy the opportunity to work with UNH families as they navigate the the college years for their children. Gifts from families are a testimony of confidence in the work we do supporting their kids, and I am always touched by the passion parents and alumni alike feel for UNH. I am fortunate to serve on a team of individuals so dedicated to their profession and willing to strive to achieve the greatest benefit possible for UNH students.

After several years at UNH, I made a mid-career transition into front-line fundraising as an institutional giving officer. I’m enjoying working with my development colleagues in new ways and collaborating with faculty members and others across campus to seek private foundation support for UNH’s distinctive research and programs. And of course, one of the great rewards of working at UNH is the opportunity to be enrolled in a degree program while receiving the tuition benefit.
