“I am honored to work with supporters of Texas A&M University who have a passion for students, their alma mater and the future of the agriculture industry, making Texas A&M a leader in education and research.

As a senior member of the Texas A&M Foundation, I am responsible for the design, leadership and implementation of development programs in support of the major gift fund-raising goals for the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences.

I began my career at the University of Arizona College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, where I obtained my bachelor’s degree in agricultural communications and my master’s degree in journalism.

I served the University of Arizona in Tucson for 15 years, most recently as Director of Major Gifts for the Health Sciences Center. I worked with donors with interests in multiple health sciences fields and assisted the Vice President of Development. I was also a part of the inaugural phase of the $1 billion Campaign Arizona and served as Director of Development of the UA College of Nursing and the UA Steele Children’s Research Center.

I have been with the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences at Texas A&M since February 2009.” -Monica Delisa

“I am the newest member of the development team for the College. I joined the Texas A&M Foundation as director of development for the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences in September 2010.

My love of Aggieland goes back many years. I am a 1992 graduate of Texas A&M, and earned a bachelor of science degree in journalism with a concentration in public relations.

I returned to Aggieland after working at the Greenhill School in Addison and the Northwestern Mutual Financial Network in Dallas.

This is my second time to work at Texas A&M. In the mid-1990s I was a communications specialist in Financial Aid and later in University Relations. I also was director of campus programs for The Association of Former Students.

I am past president, member of the board and lifetime member of the Dallas A&M Club. I also am on the Leadership Council of The Association of Former Students as an At-Large representative, and serve the association as board member of the Black Former Students Network.

It is a real pleasure to be back at Texas A&M and I look forward to working closely with our faculty, staff, students and many friends to help the College.” -Patrick Williams

“Agriculture and people ignite both my personal and professional passion. As an Aggie with generational roots in agriculture, I appreciate our vital industry and its evolving challenges.I earned both my bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Texas A&M University within the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences. Through this experience, I have a great appreciation for the education, research and outreach that our University and College offer to students, the public and industry.

I am honored to work with Aggie supporters whose agricultural interests are as diverse as the industry and who share a desire to cultivate the students and research of the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences at Texas A&M University.

I have been with the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences at Texas A&M since September 2009.” –Allison Chipman
