I am so excited to be heading back to my alma mater for a wonderful networking event on May 19th, where I’ll be sitting on a panel answering student’s questions! Get all the info here!



JMU Alumni Networking Event
May 19, 6–8 p.m.
Hilton Downtown Richmond
Tickets: $10

As part of the JMU Alumni Association’s Networking Month, alumni from your area are coming together to network with one another and hear inspiring stories from successful alums. Your host for the evening is Ashley Privott (‘15M), Executive Director of the JMU Alumni Association. In addition to informal time to mix and mingle, there will be a networking activity as well as a panel of alumni including Levar Stoney (’04). Candidate, Mayor of Richmond; Meghan Ely (’03), President, OFD Consulting; John P. Cario (’83), Area VP and General Manager, Hilton Hotel–Richmond; and Elizabeth Paul (’03). Group Strategy Director, Mullen Lowe Group, U.S.


This is a great opportunity to build you network but also hear about how fellow Dukes have found success, maneuvered through failures, and how JMU has helped along the way. Your $10 ticket includes heavy hors d’oeuvres, one drink ticket, and an evening of interaction with exceptional JMU alumni.
