Kelsey Pence

Coodinator, Event Engagement


I am responsible for supporting all phases of event implementation for the Advancement & Alumni Engagement Office.  Interested in hosting an alumni event in your area? Let's connect!

My connection to St. Ambrose: I have many friends and family who attended St. Ambrose University, including my sister. A close friend and past client introduced me to this position, and I immediately became attracted to a career in higher education. After coming from a hospitality background, I knew this would be a great fit to combine my passion for event planning and client relations.

What I like about my job: Giving alumni the opportunity to reconnect through event engagement and getting to work with dedicated volunteers. Attending events, hosting events, and volunteering are just a few ways to give back to your alma mater! I was welcomed with a sense of community and family upon beginning this new venture, and I get to work with an amazing team!

Most Commonly Asked Question? "Are you an alum?" I am not. However, I am currently getting my Masters in Organizational Leadership at St. Ambrose and am on track to graduate in Fall 2020.
