    As a recent graduate of Elon, I'm excited to help our university grow through the wonderful alumni who now inhabit the world. I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in International Studies in 2016. I focused my time at Elon on becoming a global citizen by studying abroad three times by spending a semester on Semester at Sea, a semester in Copenhagen, and a January Term in Vietnam. Additionally, I was the Student Coordinator of the Global Ambassador Program at Elon helping prospective students find opportunities abroad as I did. 

    I found the community of our school to be my favorite aspect of my time at Elon. As an Alumni Engagement Officer I focus on strengthening that community outside our campus. I oversee California, Florida, Georgia, Tennessee, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Raleigh, North Carolina. If you live in any of these regions please reach out, because I'd love to talk, and help you become a fully engaged alumni.

    I graduated from Elon University in 2013 with a degree in strategic communications and minors in dance and international studies. My time outside of the classroom was primarily dedicated to Alpha Omicron Pi and Student Alumni Council. I also interned in various local organizations. I was very fortunate to study abroad over two Winter Terms as part of an indigenous studies course in Perth, Australia and a service-learning course in Cape Town and Johannesburg, South Africa. My transformational experiences as an Elon student sparked my desire to be a lifelong learner and gave me the opportunity to develop the leadership skills necessary to becoming a successful and well-rounded global citizen.

    I began working for the university two weeks after my undergraduate graduation and spent two years traveling—from Florida to Massachusetts to California—developing relationships with our incredible alumni in my role as an alumni engagement officer. In June 2015, I transitioned into my current role as the coordinator of alumni engagement and special events. My primary responsibilities include the management of Homecoming weekend and our Social Media Ambassador alumni volunteer program. I am passionate about Elon and confident in the bright future of this university!

    A recent 2017 Elon University graduate, I majored in Public Health with minors in Biology and Human Service Studies. Elon provided me with a variety of opportunities, including the ability to complete undergraduate research through the Elon College Fellows program, participate in the Executive Internship program in the Office of University Advancement, serve on the President’s Student Leadership Advisory Council, and study abroad for a winter term in South Africa. I was also an Odyssey Scholar, cherished my time as a University Guide, and was involved in Greek Life on campus. As an Alumni Engagement Officer, I look forward to helping you connect and stay involved as a partner, advocate and investor.

    As a native of North Carolina, I’ve always admired Elon and feel privileged to work for a university that develops global citizens, informed leaders and loyal alumni. I was born and raised in Raleigh, but lived more recently in Atlanta before transitioning back to my childhood home. I earned my degree in communication studies from Appalachian State University, and my master’s degree in college student affairs administration from the University of Georgia. Higher education has always been a passion of mine and I bring more than five years of experience in alumni relations and student affairs work, including student and alumni programming, student leadership development, volunteer management and event planning.

    In my role as assistant director of alumni relations, I oversee our affinity networks and manage alumni student programming and events. We are always seeking new opportunities to engage alumni through our affinity programs, so please feel free to contact me if you’re interested in knowing more or getting involved within any of our groups.

    As a recent graduate of Elon University, I feel very fortunate to able to give back to Elon through my work as an Alumni Engagement Officer. My Elon experience was transformational and I am grateful every day for the education, experiences and relationships I have because of Elon. I received a Bachelor of Arts in strategic communications in 2013. I minored in leadership and psychology. As a student, I was a Leadership Fellow, participated in the Isabella Cannon Leadership Program and was a member of Tri-Sigma. I also studied abroad in Lyon, France, for the fall 2011 semester and participated in the South Africa Winter Term course in 2013.

    As an Alumni Engagement Officer, I oversee the regions of New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Colorado, Texas and Charlotte, North Carolina. If you live in any of these regions, I am here to be a resource for you, so please reach out to me anytime to learn how you can get connected and stay involved as a partner, advocate and investor of Elon.

    As a recent graduate of Elon University and the great-great-grandson of former Elon President Emmett L. Moffitt, I feel very fortunate to continue my family legacy, serving the university and its alumni. I graduated in 2015 with a degree in business administration with a focus in management. During my time as a student, I developed into a global citizen with the opportunity to study abroad in Germany, France and the Czech Republic. I was fortunate to gain invaluable knowledge from mentors, faculty and staff, while acquiring applicable skills through student organizations, service and an internship.

    As the coordinator of regional alumni engagement, I work with all of Elon’s 36 alumni chapters and clubs and their dedicated alumni volunteer boards to provide alumni communities across the country the opportunity to remain engaged with Elon.
