I am a proud alumnus class of 1975 and an even prouder parent of three sons from '03, '05, and '07 respectively. I spent the last 35 years building and leading businesses in Wealth Management and investment advice in New York City and Washington D.C. I was presented with an opportunity to join the development office at Georgetown Prep - an easy yes for me. Georgetown Prep has 230 years of sustained excellence as its foundation. My aim is to help ensure the next 230 years are filled with even more accomplishment. I've had a number of colleagues here at Prep greet me with "Welcome Home." It feels just like that to me.
Four of my sons are proud Georgetown Prep alumni and I am starting my 24th year here. I have worked mainly in the Development Office where I have had the pleasure of seeing people when they are at their best - when they are giving back to a school that has given them so much. It is a gift to work in this beautiful setting with such talented students and their bright, dedicated teachers. I find it very rewarding to engage with the many alumni who I knew as freshmen and now have families of their own. My husband and I are native Washingtonians and have been married for 46 years. I am a graduate of Regina High School and the University of Maryland and my husband graduated from Gonzaga and Boston College. In my free time I can be found in the company of my seven grandchildren.
After working at law firms, real estate investment firms and homebuilding companies in positions ranging from legal assistant to executive assistant to office manager, I started at Georgetown Prep in 2011 as the Assistant to the Development Director. New to the development field, I have enjoyed learning all the different facets of fundraising. I am the mother of one son, Charley, who is thrilled to be attending Prep as a member of the Class of 2020. My husband, son and I are Montgomery County natives who now live in Mt. Airy, Maryland.
Thomas Kish '88, P'21, P'23 joined Georgetown Prep in December 2018 as the school's Director of Alumni Relations. Tom is the father of Gellert '21 and Sanyi '23. He joined the Prep team after successful career in IT and process consulting helping to launch and build two startups.
Sam Fosdick joined the Development team in January as our Director of the Annual Fund. This important role will be central to our annual fundraising efforts crossing over all of our constituencies. Sam was most recently the Director of the Annual Fund at the Blue Ridge School outside of Charlottesville, Virginia.
