New Faces in the Office of Alumni Relations

We recently welcomed two new members to the Alumni Relations team.

Liz Bixler joined Pacific University as assistant director of Alumni Relations. Liz previously worked at Boise State University, where she worked in University Advancement. As a Boise State alumna, Liz earned her degree in theatre arts and public relations. Her love for event planning began with her theatre experiences because as she said, putting on a play is a lot like planning an event. Recently moved from Boise, Idaho, Liz is thrilled to be on board at Pacific and to explore the Portland area.

Lauren Altemari joins Pacific University as the newest assistant director of Alumni Relations. Lauren is a recent graduate of Auburn University with a degree in public relations, specializing in designing websites and writing. As a student Lauren did public relations work for a small animal hospital and worked for the Auburn Alumni Association. Lauren’s ultimate goal is to build her career in higher education because she feels education is one of the most important aspects of life. Originally from Georgia, Lauren is excited to begin work at Pacific and experience life on the West Coast.

Liz and Lauren join Martha Calus-McLain '03, director, and Rachel Cadd '12, coordinator. Everyone in the Office of Alumni Relations is eager to connect with alumni and to work with other areas of the university to offer great opportunities to help alumni remain part of the Pacific family. Feel free to call us at 503-352-2057 or
