She moved to the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, where she led a database conversion and developed a web-based tool for alumni from around the world to connect. These were critical to the success of Wharton’s $425 Million Campaign for Sustained Leadership, the then-largest campaign conducted by a business school. She later worked at Thomas Jefferson University and Hospital and Coriell Institute of Medical Research before being recruited to lead a database conversion at University of the Sciences. The project was completed on time and under budget and garnered the University a CASE Circle of Excellence award.
