Mikayla serves as a frontline fundraiser raising financial support for university-wide priorities as well as the priorities for each of the 17 schools, colleges and units. She is primarily focused on securing annual leadership level gifts of at least $1,500 while also qualifying major gift prospects.

Mikayla is a recent graduate from the University of Georgia where she was a Double Dawg earning both her bachelor’s and master’s degree in Sports Management from the Mary Frances Early College of Education. She was a member of the UGA women’s basketball team for 3 years after transferring from the University of Connecticut. Outside of basketball, Mikayla was able to test her leadership qualities by sitting on the SEC Women’s basketball council as Vice Chair and the NCAA Women’s Basketball Committee as the lone player representative. This led her to receiving 2022 SEC Scholar Athlete of the Year.
