Meet our team: Laurie Doud

Posted on Jun 13, 2014 in Alumni News and News

We have a pretty great team here at the KU Alumni Association! While many of our staff members travel around the world hosting events and meeting Jayhawks, many others work behind the scenes. In this new series on our blog, learn a little more about the people who make your Alumni Association a positive force for KU—and a fun place to work.

Laurie Doud, c’98, is a native of Wisconsin and serves as the event coordinator for the Adams Alumni Center. She helps make sure the wide variety of business and social events held in our building run smoothly. If you’ve ever held or attended an event here, you’ve likely seen Laurie!
