After more than 13 years in key policy and administrative roles on Capitol Hill and in the private sector, Eggimann left the world of Washington D.C. politics, where she served as Chief Clerk and Legislative Coordinator for the Committee on Veterans’ Affairs in the U.S. House of Representatives, to assume the role of Director of Alumni Relations and Advisory Boards for her alma mater.
As the director of Alumni Relations and Advisory Boards, Eggimann works to engage alumnae in the life of the College. She also oversees the development of Alumnae Chapters and acts as the College’s liaison to the Alumni Association Board and Board of Visitors (Advisory Boards). Eggimann plays an instrumental role in planning Reunion Weekend for the College.
Eggimann graduated from Converse with a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and Spanish. She then devoted four years to the Converse Admissions team including a stint as Assistant Director before heeding a call to journey further up the Eastern seaboard to pursue a career in the nation’s capital. In 2014, Jessica joined the Converse College Board of Visitors, serving on the Career Development Committee.
Grateful for the opportunity to return to Converse – her “home” in the South – Eggimann is excited about growing, expanding, and nurturing the Converse alumni network and reconnecting with Valkyries nationwide!
