Work Experience

Advancement Database Manager
Jul 2020 - Jul 2023 Thomas Aquinas College

In my role as Advancement Database Manager, I provide critical support to the fundraising efforts of Thomas Aquinas College.

• I oversee the data entry and acknowledgement of all philanthropic gifts to the College, reconciling monthly with the Business Office to ensure accuracy and consistency. This includes manual gift entry and receipting, as well as managing all credit card and ACH donation processed through BBMS.

• As the primary Raiser's Edge NXT database administrator, I oversee all data entry, maintain data health; create and run all complex queries, exports, and reports needed by the Advancement Department; create and maintain online donation forms; sync Raiser's Edge with Mailchimp via Omatic import and connector tools; manage the connection between Raiser's Edge and Almabase; train all Advancement staff in using the database and answer all technical questions; provide information, reports, and mailing lists as needed to all other departments of the College.

• I supervise a team composed of an Assistant Database Manager and three Service Scholarship student workers. Recurring projects include database health audits and cleanup; mass data entry projects; mailings (appeals, acknowledgements, event invitations, etc.).
