Connolly is a graduate of the University of Lethbridge with a B.A. in General Humanities, and also of Lethbridge College with a diploma in Communication Arts majoring in Print Journalism.
As an INFJ, meaningful work, making connections with others and making a lasting impact on the world is important to Connolly, and she believes that the United Way is an organization making a difference.
Her creativity and communications background lend themselves extremely well to the nonprofit world. You'll most often find Connolly in the office, caffeinated beverage in hand, working on designing print materials, writing news stories, or getting ready to facilitate the next Poverty Simulation. You'll also see her at Lethbridge Hurricanes home games, where she will regrettably almost never sell you the winning raffle ticket.
