Founder & CEO


Statement: I have proudly served as an active and engaged alumna to Penn State as an at-large director of the Smeal Alumni Society Board and as president of the Smeal Philadelphia Business Club. With your support in this election, I hope to extend my passions for alumni engagement to serve the broader Penn State alumni network as an Alumni Council member.

As a student, I held multiple positions throughout all four years with the Penn State Marketing Association, including president as a senior. I also had the opportunity to represent Penn State at the national American Marketing Conference each year, winning top accolades in Trade Show Exhibition—featuring the experiences of the Penn State marketing student experience.

My passion for Penn State and engagement extended past graduation through my involvement with Smeal, which lead me to eventually leave my day job and work full time on engagement technologies that would help to streamline alumni networks in higher education. While “We Are” the largest dues-paying alumni organization, we are also so much more. We are mentors, advisors, supporters, volunteers and most importantly, we are leaders. At Tassl, we focus on helping institutions, including Penn State, create a culture of recognition around these types of engagement.

As a potential Alumni Council member, I plan to leverage my industry knowledge to help bring the best initiatives and insights to the Alumni Association, highlight our engaged network, and help support the mission of creating lifelong value and resources for all Penn State Alumni.

For the Glory!
