Bryn Mawr College



My primary role at Bryn Mawr College is to support the functional use of PeopleSoft Contributor Relations (CR), including key areas of Prospect Management, Bio/Demo, Gift Entry, and reporting. I design how we use CR, train users on how to get the most out of the system, and troubleshoot issues. I work with end users in the Development Office, Alumnae Association, and President’s Office, as well as other departments across campus. I also work very closely with IT and our programming resources to translate our data and reporting needs for the technical side. I have a very strong working knowledge of both CR and Campus Community. Since we use PeopleSoft across departments, I have a good understanding of how all of the pieces fit together and I am very active on our Data Standards committee and security issues.

Bryn Mawr is relatively small and we have kept customizations to a minimum, so I have had success using the system as delivered. I have worked with the software since 1999 and was the lead Functional Analyst on the initial implementation team. We were the first school to “go-live” on CR with gift data.
