My name is Katelyn Storms Rizer and I am the Assistant Director of Alumni Relations and Special Events here at the Kelley School of Business.

I knew I had found my career path when I began to plan play dates and group parties starting at a young age. From there, no one could stop my personality and will to succeed. I’ve always loved bringing groups of people together and coming up with new ways to do things and make the best even better.

My path started at Trine University (formerly known as Tri-State University) where I received my degree in Business Administration with a major in Sports Management. By being involved around campus and making lots of connections, I was able to find student employment through the Office of Student Life. After graduation, I was offered the Assistant Director of Student Life position and jumped at the opportunity! From there I decided I wanted to be a little closer to my family and hometown so I took a position as Event Planner through Purdue University Development. After Purdue, I went to work at the Indiana Association of Cities and Towns as their Database and Events Coordinator. After being out of higher education for a little while, I was having the itch to get back to the collegiate atmosphere.

I am so excited to be working in higher education again and using my creativity to “wire and inspire” current students and alumni! In my spare time, you can find me spending time with my family, friends, biking, coaching volleyball and playing all kind of sports.
