How did you get into fundraising and/or prospect research?

The duties of the job including reading local newspapers and business journals to collect articles on the alumni and donors. Eventually a full-time prospect research position became available, so I took it and never left!

Playing a musical instrument like the piano or mandolin

Hands down a personal housekeeper. I have a husband who loves to cook and drive but never cleans!
