GAIL Greats: Kate Lovin

GAIL Greats: Kate Lovin

Who are GAIL Greats?

In June 2022, the Client Services Team rolled out a new initiative aimed at recognizing GAIL users who go above and beyond to advance the database. GAIL Greats take what they learn from trainings, support resources and fellow users and apply it to real-life applications in GAIL. They’re also nominated by their very own GAIL peers! 

Meet Kate Lovin

Congratulations to Kate Lovin as she joins our growing list of GAIL Greats! Kate is the Parent Giving Coordinator for central Development and Alumni Relations. She has been with DAR for four years, starting with the Corporate and Foundation Relations Team in 2018 and then transitioning onto the Parent Giving Team in 2019. 

Kate's Fun Facts!

Get to know Kate better with these fun facts she’s shared:

  • During Kate’s time as a UGA student, she was a member of the Alpha Delta Pi sorority and was on the winning SDT Greek Grind team of 2013!
  • Kate and her family recently moved to Madison, GA! They are loving small town life and look forward to having more space for their daughter and dogs to run around and play.

The Work Behind the Scenes

Kate was nominated by her peer, Eric Schmidt who was particularly impressed with Kate’s efficiency in creating events on behalf of the Parent Giving Team. The Client Services Team couldn’t agree more! Between March and August 2022, Kate Lovin created over 15 New Student and Parent Welcome Events across the country! She also sent several communications including invitations, reminders and follow-up emails for each of the events.  

While certain areas in the Events module can be daunting, Kate continues to exceed the GAIL expectation of how an event should be created and how communications should be sent.

Advice from a GAIL Great

Kate Lovin: “My best advice to all GAIL users is to save your frequently visited pages to your shortcuts! This has significantly improved the quality of my GAIL experience.”
