Linnea Chesman joined the University of Colorado Boulder Advancement on the Principal Gifts team in July 2021. Her main focus is leadership strategy and engagement with high-capacity prospects in both local and national markets. Linnea also works with advancement partners across campus to provide effective opportunities for donors, faculty, and staff to collaborate on meaningful principal gifts. Originally from the New York metro area, Linnea moved to Boulder to study history and art history at CU and has called Colorado home ever since. Bringing prior experience in human resources, event planning, and archiving, she is excited to be back on campus in a professional capacity. Linnea’s favorite way to spend her free time is traveling with friends and family and watching the Colorado Avalanche.
