Atlanta (July 16, 2008) — Melisa Baldwin joined the School as the director of development in early May, bringing with her more than ten years of major gift and corporate development experience in a collegiate environment. Melisa previously served as a regional director for Georgia Tech covering Florida and the Caribbean.
She says, “I am very excited to be a part of the ChBE team. There are wonderful funding opportunities in the School, including scholarships, fellowships, chairs, and professorships.” Through her experience working at GT and other college campuses, Melisa recognizes that alumni and friends play a huge role in the success of academic and research programs through their generous gifts.
She says, “I look forward to talking with everyone who is interested in learning more about the School and its financial needs to ensure we continue to offer the best education and research opportunities for our students and faculty.”
Prior to working at GT, Melisa served as
director of major gifts at Georgia State University and worked extensively in development at the University of Florida and the University of North Florida in the area of health and medicine.
Melisa enjoys spending time with family and friends, including her husband, Mark, their two cats, and two dachshunds. They enjoy trivia, playing tennis, and exploring the changing landscape of Midtown and downtown Atlanta.
