Katie Dissmeyer Dodd


Associate Director of Development, Alumni Relations


I joined as a Menlo alumni volunteer in 2004 when I returned to the Bay Area from living on the East Coast. I have continued to serve on the Menlo Alumni Board in various positions, including President from 2008-2010.

After receiving my BS from Vanderbilt University, I worked for Aon Corporation in London. I transitioned my career to align with the internet boom and relocated to New York City for four years. Upon moving to San Francisco, I worked for Williams-Sonoma Inc. in a variety of roles, including as a buyer overseeing purchasing for a range of products in the company’s 270 retail locations and their complementary online initiatives.

I live in Portola Valley with my husband and two children and enjoy running and gardening.
