Marvashti Named as Leadership Fredericksburg Fellow

Lisa Chinn Marvashti, assistant director of marketing in the University Relations office, has been chosen by the Fredericksburg Regional Chamber of Commerce as one of the 30 fellows in its Leadership Fredericksburg program’s 2017 Class.

The fellows will take part in sessions from September through May that will include in-depth leadership skills development and meetings with various industry and community leaders. Each fellow will be paired with a trained mentor from the business community who will support his or her progress through the program. The participants will divide into teams to partner with an area nonprofit on an action learning project. Each team will present concrete results to the nonprofits next May.

Upon graduating in May, members of the 2017 class may join the Leadership Fredericksburg Alumni Association and have opportunities to serve on the Leadership Advisory Board, mentor future participants, take a leadership role in the Alumni, and help implement future programs. The Chamber will partner with David Corderman with Academy Leadership Associates and J.R. Flatter with Flatter and Associates to plan and implement the program.

Lisa has been with UMW for five years. In addition to her work in marketing, she has edited the alumni magazine and worked in editorial services.
