WSU AD Pat Chun has brought in another top fund-raiser to WSU. This time it is even a bigger coup as the new Director of Spokane Operations for the CAF is coming over from the Huskies. Krista Rammelsberg was the major gift officer for the University of Washington before joining the crimson and gray. Here is what Chun had to say about his new hire.

“We are excited to welcome Krista to the Cougar Family,” said Chun. “She has strong ties to Washington State University Athletics and the Pac-12 Conference, is known as a strong fundraiser, and will be a tremendous asset to our efforts in the region. Krista is the ideal fit to oversee our Spokane operations.”

Rammelsberg was born and raised in Pullman and attended Gonzaga University. Her role in CAF will be to oversee Eastern Washington/North Idaho fundraising as well as California. She is excited to be joining the Cougar family.

“For a kid who grew up in Pullman, the opportunity to work in service for Cougar student-athletes and this community is a dream come true,” said Rammelsberg. “I’m thrilled to be back in the crimson and gray.”

Once again Chun is showing his commitment to fund raising is more than just lip service. Welcome to WSU Krista!
