As the new director of development for MUSC College of Nursing, Kaitlin Epperson is excited to spotlight the incredible work of students, faculty and staff and to share the meaningful impact donors can make on the future of the college.

What do you enjoy most about your work?

The thing I enjoy the most about my work is that at the end of each day, I know I am helping others and leaving an impact on my community.

What makes MUSC College of Nursing such a dynamic and special community?

In my short time in the role, it’s clear that MUSC College of Nursing is a dynamic and special community; this culture is established within the leadership of the college, along with its faculty, staff and students. As I reflect on my first few months with the College of Nursing, I am filled with gratitude for the warm welcome and support I have received. I have been met with openness, kindness and a genuine eagerness to collaborate. The fact that the college is part of an Academic Medical Center sets us apart as far as what we can accomplish in the research and education space.

How does donor support impact the mission of the College of Nursing and those it serves?

Ultimately, the work we do in Development establishes possibilities that may not have otherwise come into fruition without the generous support of our alumni and community donor base. Our donors have an affinity to give to MUSC College of Nursing, and their goal with each gift is to help the College fulfill its mission. I am continually inspired by the generosity and dedication of individuals who are committed to making a difference in the nursing community.

What is your favorite thing about working with MUSC donors?

Each donor presents a unique connection to and passion for MUSC. I love getting to know the donor’s story and helping them along their philanthropic journey. It’s a wonderful partnership!

Goals for the next year:

Continue to bolster philanthropic support for MUSC College of Nursing!
