About the Staff

Bobbi Earles ('88)
Executive Director of Alumni and Communications

After graduating from Loras with a degree in media studies, Bobbi entered the world of broadcast journalism and spent the next 14 years reporting and anchoring for an NBC affiliate. In 2003, she returned to campus as a Senior Development Officer and then was tapped as the Executive Director of Alumni and Communications in 2005.

Growing and engaging alumni have been an exciting challenge. Loras College Duhawks are a loyal group and reconnecting them in ways where they have an impact on today's students is something Bobbi finds very rewarding.

Overseeing strategic planning and working on new initiatives for alumni programming are just part of Bobbi's responsibilities. In addition, she works with the members of the National Alumni Board, and alumni involved with the Loras Networks of Dubuque, Chicago, Waterloo/Cedar Falls and Rockford as they strive to raise scholarships for area students while supporting the initiatives of the College.

On campus, Bobbi serves on the Catholic Identity and Strategic Planning committees; off campus she volunteers her time as a board member of the Red Cross of the Tri-States Chapter and Opening Doors, a transitional and emergency shelter for homeless women and children.


Brie Pumilia ('15)
Assistant Director of Alumni Relations

Brie is a 2015 graduate with a degree in Art and Digital Design. Originally from Rockford, IL she transferred to Loras from Rock Valley Community College in the fall of 2012. In choosing a school, it was Duhawks who influenced her decision to attend Loras, and then supported her through the next three years. Through her involvement in organizations such as Duhawk Dance Marathon and the Loras Student Alumni Council, Brie once again saw the impact alums had on her education and experience at Loras.

Those opportunities and encounters are what led her to her position in the Alumni Office as the Assistant Director of Alumni Relations. Brie will work with members of the Young Alumni Advisory Board and the Loras Student Alumni Council, as well as alumni involved with the Loras Networks of Cedar Rapids and Iowa City, Des Moines, La Crosse, Milwaukee, and the Quad Cities to provide scholarships for area students as well as continue to celebrate, unite, and support the mission of the college.

Knowing all that alumni have done to give her the best education and experience, Brie is excited for the chance to work with those same alums to continue to give back to the Loras community.
