Erika Page Spivey ‘11 (President) is a graduate of UMW’s first class of the College of Business. By day, she coordinates media and public relations initiatives for UMW, and by night she can be found pitching media relations plans, developing nonprofit brand campaigns, and strategizing corporate-cause partnerships as part of her master’s program in PR and Corporate Communications at Georgetown University. In her spare time, Erika likes to run the streets of downtown or bench sit (as only a UMW alum truly can) at Hyperion, coffee and book in hand.

Michelle Quinn (Vice President) is a 2005 graduate of UMW's MBA program. Michelle works at VxL International, a local Veteran Owned Small Business (VOSB), supporting U.S. Government missions in High threat theaters around the world.

Kyle F. Allwine ‘12 (Social Media Overlord) is a History and Historic Preservation graduate interested in expanding the reach of Mary Washington in Fredericksburg. Day to day, Kyle is an Assistant Director of Admissions at Mary Washington, but spends the rest of his time hiking, sailing, and taking care of his goats. Go Goats!
