New Office Location and Staff Transitions

As we begin to transition into the spring season, the Office of Development is making transitions of its own. First off, Alumni Relations has recently moved offices from 33 Fiddlers Lane. Our offices are now located across the way on the first floor of the St. Francis House.

There have been recent staff transitions in our office as well. More specifically, Eileen Verno and Dvora Koelling are beginning new roles that will help strengthen the Development Office.

Eileen has recently moved from the Office of Alumni Relations to Stewardship. As the Development Coordinator, her office remains at 33 Fiddlers Lane and she will continue to work closely with special events as well as stewardship. If you wish to contact Eileen, the best way to reach her is by phone at (518) 782-6779.

Oppositely, Dvora has moved into the Office of Alumni Relations as the Alumni Relations, Development Assistant. Dvora came to us from the Major Gifts Office at Siena. In her position as Development Assistant Major Gifts, Dvora supported three Major Gift Officers including Robin Sanders, Stephen Archer and Sarah Taylor. In her new position, she will support the Alumni Relations Office in planning events, communicating with alumni and fostering relationships with the Siena community.

If you wish to contact Dvora, the best way to reach her is at the Alumni Relations main phone line, (518) 783-2430 or via email,
