I am Pleased to announce that Sharon Rankert and Maurcia Marschke have accepted the positions of Database Coordinator in Donor Services. Both Sharon and Maurcia will assume some of the responsibilities previously held by Sandie Schiele and JoAnn Raatz, who have recently retired.
Sharon will work closely with other members of the Donor Services staff to update biographic records, decease entities, process gifts and prepare gift acknowledgements. She will also take over the Memorial Notification process in Donor Services informing families of memorial donations to the University given in memory of their family member.
A graduate of Indiana University of South Bend, Sharon most recently helped with our Year End efforts as a member of our temporary staff. Prior to coming to Notre Dame, Sharon served as a Stewardship Coordinator at Culver Academies with responsibilities in donor reporting. Her other experiences include her employment at Pebble Beach Resorts, where she was identified as the top reservations agent for the Pebble Beach Resorts, and substitute teaching in Wuerzburg, Germany.
Sharon’s husband Brett is retired from the military and is currently employed at Culver Military Academy. Her son Justin, is a sophomore at Indiana University South Bend.
Maurcia will work with our Donor Services staff updating biographic records, processing gifts, preparing gift acknowledgements and serving as the point of contact for the Donor Services gift processors for updates on checks and gift source documents.
Maurcia also helped with our Year End efforts as a member of our temporary staff. Prior to coming to Notre Dame she worked at Allied Hematology-Oncology. Other experiences include her employment with Liz Claiborne in New York as a merchandiser and owner of her own business, the Nutty Bavarian of Indiana.
Maurcia’s husband Ray is a huge Notre Dame fan and works for a major RV company in Elkhart.
Sharon and Maurcia bring enthusiasm and talent to the Donor Services team. We are excited to be fully staffed and look forward to the year ahead.
Please join me in welcoming them both to Development.
Sue Prister, Assistant Director, Donor Services
