Meet the Development Team 


Kate O’Halloran grew up in Waterville and was the youngest of five children, and fondly remembers learning to ski at the Colby Ski Slope and Titcomb.  The family’s annual trip to Sugarloaf was a big deal, and Kate is quite sure her skiing ability peaked at about age 10. After graduating from Waterville High School in 1985, Kate attended Brown University where she was a varsity ice hockey player and had a dual major in economics and organizational behavior. Kate earned her MBA at Babson College in 1998, where she stayed on to serve as the Director of Strategic Initiatives and the Associate Director of the Center for Entrepreneurship.  In 2003, after 15 years of living, working and playing in Boston, Kate moved home to Waterville to be closer to her family. She began her development career in gift planning at Colby College, and served as the Director of Major Gifts and Gift Planning for MaineGeneral Health for three years prior to coming to CVA in 2012. Kate is responsible for all aspects of CVA’s philanthropic efforts, including the annual fund, the New Campus Campaign, the Scholarship Fundraiser and special projects. Kate works closely with CVA’s leadership team to create and execute a fundraising plan to support the organization’s short and long term needs. Kate also leads CVA’s alumni engagement efforts, and enjoys meeting with alumni throughout the year. Kate still loves to ski but she retired form racing after a one-year stint in the Sugarloaf Locals Race League, where she was simply grateful to get out unscathed.
