New development director

As many of you may already be aware, Kate Myers joined the Emory Eye Center as the director of development in October 2014. Although new to the Eye Center, Kate has been in development at Emory since 2011, first with the Winship Cancer Institute, and most recently, the Emory Libraries.

Kate is a graduate of the University of Georgia where she studied anthropology and archaeology and earned a Master in Public Administration. She looks forward to meeting all of you, if she hasn’t already.

Please feel free to reach out to her if she can be a resource.
