In her current role at the University of South Florida (USF), Katie advises both geographic alumni chapters and interest-based alumni societies. Having been with the USF Alumni Association for ten years, Katie has worked with multiple diverse alumni groups. In the spring and summer of 2014 she spearheaded the association’s efforts to refresh the alumni groups program and was integral to the development of a new operating plan, Project Group Evolution. The new model established a tier system, created new categories of alumni groups and set clear expectations for both staff and volunteers. In addition to her primary work with alumni groups she also executes the association’s annual business recognition awards.
