Why do you volunteer as a Fund Director?
I volunteer as a Fund Director because I am grateful for the generosity of the alumni who helped make my Bowdoin experience possible and I want to honor and preserve their contributions. Through my service as a Fund Director, I have had the privilege of meeting many of my fellow Class Agents and I look forward to supporting their essential work in FY19. I strongly believe consistent alumni gifting benefits the College and the greater Bowdoin community far beyond individual dollar amounts.
What do you do professionally?
I have an NYC-based integrated marketing consultancy specializing in beauty, wellness, and retail. Client projects range from brand asset development to pop up event concepting to retail boutique curation. While a student at Bowdoin, I was able to explore my interest in how we care for, present, and experience our physical bodies through a fascinating research project (Thank you, Professor Dauge-Roth). After Bowdoin, I worked in marketing for a small French spa brand and have stayed in the holistic beauty space since. Always happy to talk shop!
What is the most important aspect of your relationship with Bowdoin?
The community. I have met so many extraordinary people through Bowdoin, both when I was a student, and now as an alum. These relationships have inspired, challenged and supported me. My life continues to be enriched by the Bowdoin community. Also, I miss the dining hall.
