About Me

Kailah Holmes serves the Division of University Advancement as the Director of Alumni Engagement and Programming.  Prior to Arcadia, Kailah was the Development Associate at KenCrest Services, focusing on advancement services functions, including donor database management, database migration, gift entry, and donor stewardship. Kailah also supported special events and fundraising efforts.

Her prior experience was grounded in social service work as a PATH case manager at Penndel Mental Health Center, where she was the voice and advocate for the homeless. Driven by a deep care for the well-being of others, she provided direct service to transition people into housing and financial stability from a state of homelessness, including supporting client admissions, completing the application process to aid her clients for entry into emergency local shelters, and strengthening the likelihood of their sustained housing stability.

Launching her life of service, she was an intern at Big Brothers Big Sisters of Bucks County and volunteered at Family Service Association of Bucks County.

She holds her undergraduate degree from Gwynedd Mercy University and an MPA from Villanova University.
