PARTNERSHIP COORDINATOR

My name is Cam Draude and I am a senior Public Administration major with an emphasis in Economics & Finance and a minor in Marketing. I am originally from Altoona, Iowa. Prior to beginning my work with College Hill Partnership, I completed an internship with a pair of independent financial advisers affiliated with The Principal Financial Group and will be completing another during Summer 2016 with Mudd Advertising in Cedar Falls in addition to my work with CHP. Outside of work I am very active in my fraternity, Sigma Phi Epsilon, where I am currently on our executive board as Vice President of Communications and served as our Philanthropy Director for a year and a half.

I look forward to working with all of you and applying all I have learned through my work experience and coursework to the mission of continuing to revitalize and advance the College Hill!
