Connor's primary responsibility is to oversee and guide Student U’s fundraising and development efforts through fostering relationships with supporters of Student U’s missions and programs.
As a guiding principle, I believe that young people are assets to our communities with the capacity to contribute to real world issues. I strongly believe in youth voice and authenticity. Our students are capable of AMAZING things and I am proud to lift up their narratives as they grow into their immense potential. It feels really special to work at a place that cares so much about its students and families.
Connor outside of Student U:
My husband, Jesse, teaches Theatre Arts at Southern High School and I love supporting him as an educator and help with the costuming for the shows with the students. I also love to travel, go on runs, read, cook, and contribute to community organizing and mutual aid efforts in my spare time.
