Rachel Kirby '03

I graduated from Carleton in 2003 with a special major in linguistics/computer science.

I have been working for Marquette University for three years, in the Advancement department.  I work mainly with our fundraising database, and I really enjoy working with the data.  I started off as a report-writer, pulling lists of data and working on some more complex reports.  Currently, I do a lot of cleanup projects to make our data more useful for fundraising, as well as manage the team that inputs all of our incoming database updates.  It has been really interesting learning how fundraising works.

I am currently applying for a Master of Science in Computing program at Marquette.  I would like to pursue further areas of database work in my career, and the degree would help me do that.
