I am very excited to be the new President of the Trocaire College Alumni Board!  I have been involved with alumni activities for several years now, and love meeting alumni and hearing their life and career experiences first hand.

My Trocaire College education has afforded me a unique nursing career, beyond what I ever expected, and I am thrilled to give back to the institution that started my journey.  We have a lot to accomplish and I look forward to working with the other members of the board over the next few years.

I would like to thank Hank J. Mumme, Jr. for his amazing tenure as president.  I have big shoes to fill, and I will do my best to emulate his passion for service to the school.  My mission as board president is to engage Trocaire alumni in a manner that honors the past, present and future of the institution: to look for new initiatives, new faces and a new commitment to alumni awareness and the association.  The board also hopes to gain a new connection with the current students, who we like to think of as “future alumni.”

The Distinguished Alumni Dinner is a highlight of the school year.  The date will be announced soon, so stay tuned as space will be limited for this event.

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to serve as your next alumni board president.  Trocaire is truly “the college where lives are transformed”.
