Comings and Goings: Miranda Wellman '91
Posted 11/22/2017 11:00AM


Catlin Gabel announced this week that Miranda Wellman '91, Director of Advancement and Strategic Initiatives, has decided to step out of her role this winter after 12 years of exemplary service to our school community. Miranda oversees the school's annual and capital giving programs, alumni program, communications and marketing, and community events.

Miranda will continue in her current role while the school conducts a nationwide search to fill her position.

Since 2003, Miranda has partnered with the board, colleagues, parents, and alumni to move our school forward in powerful ways. During her tenure, she has been instrumental in growing the annual fund by 29%; raising over $46 million in philanthropic support, including the largest gift in the school's history; expanding alumni connections and events; and modernizing our admission and communications functions.

She has been a valued strategic partner with former Head of School Lark Palma and with current Head of School Tim Bazemore, and has helped to shape and execute our current strategic plan.

Miranda will begin her career as a philanthropic and strategic planning consultant, and her first client will be Catlin Gabel. She will transition to a new consultant relationship with our school, working with the board, volunteers, and Head of School Tim Bazemore on the school's upcoming capital campaign.
