Last fall I was warmly welcomed into the Palmer College community and I’ve been working since then to put together the best Advancement team Palmer has ever seen. That’s one of the changes we’ve made: We’re no longer the Development Office and the Alumni Office but one big, happy family—the Advancement Office. We’re working hand-in-hand, every day, to advance Palmer’s mission.

Our team is working hard to advance Palmer’s mission, but everyone, from our faculty, staff and students to our alumni and friends, is on the Advancement team. All of us should be telling people we interact with every day about Palmer’s mission of excellence in chiropractic education, patient care, research and community engagement. You, me and everyone who cares about Palmer is on the Advancement team!

Having said that, I’m blessed to work with an incredible team of professionals in the Advancement Office. I think the best way to introduce us is in a photo. Check us out above and we look forward to meeting you!
