Class of 2000, Board of Directors Nominee
Cara Gardner, the PR Coordinator at GEA Process Engineering, spends her days planning conferences across the U.S. and designing ads for the glamorous industry of stainless steel processing systems. She has also done event planning for a law firm and a sports event company.
A natural leader and organizer, Cara readily steps up and takes charge when planning is involved. With over 15 years of retail experience (5 years in retail management), she truly understands the importance of listening to and meeting the needs of clients.
In her time off, she’ll be the first to tell you she doesn’t let the grass grow beneath her feet. She discovered running as a hobby in 2010, and ran her first marathon in 2011. Since then, Cara has also run seven mud obstacle races (Tough Mudders and Spartans) in 4 different states. One highlight in her experiences at Syracuse was that she did the pilot episode of Who Wants to be a Millionaire with Regis Philbin.
Cara graduated from Syracuse University in 2000 with a B.F.A in Advertising Design (V.P.A) and a minor in Communications Photography (Newhouse). Since joining the Club, she has acted as the Club’s Social Director organizing many of the B’more Orange events.
Class of 1992, Board of Directors Nominee
Davis is a Program Manager for Microsoft’s National Security Group. He graduated Syracuse with a degree in Speech Communication (now Communication and Rhetorical Studies) and was a member of the Lambda Chi Alpha Fraternity. An avid sports fan, you could always find him somewhere in the Dome on game day.
When he’s am not busy working (which is rare), he love spending time with my family, usually reading books together. Davis is excited with the number of Orange fans we have in the Baltimore area, and the momentum we are gaining in increasing involvement in the Alumni Association. Davis has been an integral part of the Club as the Assistant Secretary for the past year.
Class of 2009, Board of Directors Nominee
Born and raised in Baltimore, Kaitlin ventured up I-83 without a clue as to what “lake effect” meant. She quickly learned. While at Syracuse, Kaitlin earned a dual Policy Studies and History degree from the Maxwell School.
After moving back to Baltimore in 2009, Kaitlin has worked in research and the non-profit sector. She recently started working for the Green and Healthy Homes Initiative as a Community Outreach and Education Coordinator. Kaitlin is currently pursuing a Masters of Public Administration from the University of Baltimore.

Class of 2005, Board of Directors Nominee
When she was growing up, she wanted to be tall. However, Sarah’s stature is in no way representative of the big ideas she brings to the table.

Since moving to Baltimore in 2005, Sarah has worked at numerous different creative firms and agencies in the area. Currently, she is a Senior Designer and Project Manager at Novak Birch just south of Federal Hill in Baltimore. Sarah has been working with the alumni club for over a year as the Communications Director sending out eNewsletters, eMail blasts, and building the new website.
