She has been involved in two significant campaigns for UC San Diego—in the first raising over $1 billion completed in 2007, and in the second, just completed, raising over $3 billion. Her team oversees the full charitable gift revenue cycle from proposal review, to gift agreement preparation, gift analysis, processing and receipting, gift accounting, investment and endowment management, planned gift management, donor acknowledgement, and ongoing gift and fund stewardship. Her team has analyzed many significant gifts-in-kind for acceptance and understands the unique opportunities and challenges they can provide to our institutions.
