Director of Annual Giving
As the Director of Annual Giving, Gillian works to guarantee and further the mission of Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi by overseeing annual giving initiatives, which include the Islander Annual Fund, President's Circle, Parent's Council and the Faculty & Staff Giving Campaign. She also plays an active role in participating in community events, meeting with faculty, alumni and friends of the university in an effort to excite them and connect them with TAMUCC. I believe that through engaging the greater community that we can continue to thrive and build a lasting legacy for future generations of students and the city of Corpus Christi.
Gillian earned a BA in Arts History and Arts Management from the University of San Francisco and has played an active role on their alumni board, Southern California regional council, and spearheaded a peer-to-peer giving program. Before relocating for Corpus Christi, Gillian was most recently living in San Diego, CA where her husband was stationed as a helicopter pilot in the US Navy and she was leading alumni and annual giving programs at a K-12 independent school. As a native and 10th generation Texan, she is so thrilled to be back in her home state and serving the Island University in this role.
