Letter from the President

Purdue Engineering Alumni Family,

I want to start by introducing myself. My name is Jenny Gattari and I am a BSIE class of ’85. I have served on the board for 4 years and am proud to be this year’s Engineering Alumni Association Board President. It is an honor to serve in this role knowing that right now there are over 100,000 Purdue Engineering Alumni, located all over the world creating big solutions to big problems!

Like many other Purdue Engineers, I use the tools I left campus with in my everyday life. As Senior Director Portfolio Network Planning for Pfizer, I use my Purdue degree every day to ensure we are creating breakthroughs that change patients’ lives.  I recently identified a portfolio enhancement that improves patient and caregiver safety for one of our hospital injectable medications.  This is just one example of many how Purdue Engineering has helped shape where I am today and because of this I continue to volunteer my time with the College of Engineering.

The EAA Board is eager to continue generating and maintaining a life-long passion within all Purdue Engineering alumni by providing enriched alumni connections, being a strong advocate for the Dean of Engineering’s key initiatives and to inspire the next generation of Purdue engineers.

So, no matter what your area of study was, what year you graduated, or where you are now, I encourage you to connect with us and explore how we continue to enhance and provide opportunities for our engineering alumni. After all, we are all Purdue Engineers for Life!

Thank you and Boiler Up!

Jennifer Gattari, BSIE ‘85

President, Purdue Engineering Alumni Association
