Q: Describe your role at Brown.

A: As the associate director of class programs at Brown University, I oversee alumni class programs and work with elected class volunteer leaders. I help the leaders engage with their classmates, organize events that bring classmates closer together, and create programming and communications that keep Brown in the forefront of their lives and keep them part of our great community.

Q: What is most rewarding about your work?

A: One of my favorite things is the Reunion Weekend every Memorial Day weekend, which coincides with out Commencement. The energy of over 6,500 alumni returning is amazing. Our team works with volunteers to make sure their reunion classes have the best experience.

Knowing that volunteers and returning alumni have had a memorable time back at their alma mater is just so rewarding.

Q: What have you done with CASE District I?

A: For the last several years I have been a proud board member of the District I CASE Conference Committee. I’m currently chair of career resources on the Operations Committee, where I focus on providing an online resource for CASE DI members to post and apply for jobs.

It is an evolving, terrific resource that we continue to expand on, and a great opportunity for those looking for their next level job or for those who have a terrific position that needs a great candidate.
