I have been named Executive Director of the Lansing Community College Foundation which supports the college through scholarship development and fundraising for college initiatives. The Foundation also serves as home to the college Alumni Association and Employee Development Fund. I am no stranger to the Foundation having worked there as Alumni Development Manager in 2006-07, playing an instrumental role in helping the college celebrate its 50th anniversary (2007).
The Lansing Community College Foundation is a tax exempt, non-profit organization that last year provided 825 scholarships valuing nearly $822,000. It has endowment funds totaling nearly $10 million. The Foundation also serves as a key supporter for LCC program improvements, technological advancements and staff development.
From 2007 until returning to LCC this year, I was director of Development & Alumni Relations at Lyman Briggs College at Michigan State University where I was responsible for fundraising, gift procurement and alumni relations among other duties. In 2006-07 I was also the founding chief operating officer for the International Partnership for Critical Markers of Disease, a non-profit organization created to establish partnerships between the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, National Institute for Health, the pharmaceutical industry, research universities and other healthcare partners. There I worked to develop coalitions and cooperation to support critical paths to drug approvals.
