I am thrilled to be back in Catholic secondary education and a part of the Cougar Family! I am excited for the future and I look forward to an amazing year. My responsibilities here at Gross Catholic include major gifts, annual fund, planned giving, capital campaigns, endowment, strategic planning and grant writing.
As the new Director of Development, I want to take this opportunity to introduce myself. I am originally from Cedar Falls, Iowa but have lived in Omaha, Nebraska for seven years. I graduated from the University of Northern Iowa in 2003 with a Bachelor of Arts in textiles and apparel concentrating in marketing. Prior to working for Gross Catholic, I worked for the Boy Scouts of America, Mid-America Council for 19 months as their fundraising executive and at Mercy High School for six years as a their advancement assistant and special events planner.
I am also very active in the community as a volunteer. I currently serve as the corresponding secretary for the Junior League of Omaha, president-elect of the Omaha Alumnae Panhellenic Association, Child Savings Institute guild board member and panhellenic representative for the Omaha/Council Bluffs Sigma Sigma Sigma Alumnae Association. I have also been nominated twice to apply for the Omaha Jaycees Ten Outstanding Young Omahans award (TOYO).
When I’m not busy working or volunteering I like to play golf and spend time at our family lake house on Rush Lake in Minnesota!
Very soon you will receive our annual fund appeal. Your generosity makes it possible for more students to benefit from this special, quality education in the Marianist tradition. You keep Gross Catholic strong with your gift.
The Annual Fund supports our Individual Tuition Plan Program by assisting committed families financially. Gifts of the Annual Fund are a primary source of income to keep tuition to a minimum and ensure that Gross Catholic is accessible to a diverse population. We thank you for your support and hope you will prayerfully consider donating. “For it is in giving that we receive.” Saint Francis of Assisi
