UT Elementary Development Staff Join DDCE Office of Development
Carly Nieri, a director of development, and Angie Pete Yowell, assistant director of development, have recently transitioned from UT Elementary School to the DDCE's development office under executive director Martha Oestreich.
Carly Nieri has worked at the UT Elementary School for the past year and a half. During the eight years before coming to the university, she worked with non-profits including the March of Dimes, Camp Fire Boys and Girls and the Rio Salado Town Lake Foundation. She also served as the vice president of the Arizona Chapter of the National Association of Industrial and Office Properties, helping to raise funds, recruit members, set up events and book high-profile speakers.
Nieri studied at Florida State University and graduated with a double major in Humanities and Spanish. Raising awareness and funds for those in need has been her passion since she was a teenager and she is delighted that she is able to fulfill her passion everyday while working to raise money for the University of Texas Elementary School and the Division of Diversity and Community Engagement.
Angie Pete Yowell has been working with UT Elementary for the past 14 months working on fundraising, grant writing, marketing and public relations. She received her bachelor’s degree in business administration from the McCombs School of Business at UT Austin, and her master’s degree from the LBJ School of Public Affairs with portfolios in both nonprofit studies and communication, information, and cultural policy. Yowell previously worked as a Senior Account Executive in the media industry, developing marketing plans for small businesses in the Houston area. Her passion for social justice issues brought her back to Austin to earn a public affairs degree.
Yowell enjoys volunteering for local campaigns and area nonprofit groups, especially those dealing with community / public media and social services for the disadvantaged. She cherishes spending time with her husband and daughter and being active with her church. Yowell says she “bleeds orange,” and is very excited to be working towards the goals and initiatives of the Office of the Vice President for Diversity and Community Engagement.
