Lillian Samuel, MNA ’11

"I was a development director of a small nonprofit and now I work as a development director for one of the top universities in the country. I used to raise hundreds of thousands of dollars, now I raise millions of dollars. I certainly needed the degree to take me to this level. I am much more confident… I feel like there is no limit to what I can do."
