Seton Alum Joins Staff
By Jessica Wuebbolt
On Monday, February 24, Seton welcomed back 1995 alum, Christina McCarthy in the development office. McCarthy will take Leslie Chasteen’s previous role of alumni relations, as well as coordinating the annual fund. McCarthy’s role consists of organizing the annual alumni walk and fundraising for the annual fund. The annual fund provides solicitations to graduates and Seton alumni. She also will be in charge of SWAP which stands for Seton Women as Professionals. SWAP is a growing alumnae group which encourages graduates to reconnect, swap visions and swap resources.
McCarthy graduated from Saint Louis University with a major in marketing, Spanish, and international studies. She was fortunate enough to be able to use her Spanish degree when she studied abroad in Spain at SLU’s Madrid campus. She then began her career at Edward Jones as a product specialist on the trading floor. After ten years in Saint Louis, McCarthy decided to move back to her hometown, Cincinnati. In Cincinnati she started to raise her three young children while she worked for the Leukemia society as a major events donor for five years and in development for four years. Besides working and taking care of her three children, Christina enjoys traveling with her family.
McCarthy is excited to be back at Seton and is looking forward to all the upcoming events and being a part of the community again. McCarthy says her reason for coming back to Seton is the supportive community. McCarthy comments, “My entire life has been spent in Catholic schools and I value it greatly. When the opportunity became available, I knew it would be a great opportunity for not only myself, but for my two young daughters to be a part of the Seton community. “
Seton Staff and community welcomes Christina McCarthy!
