Get to Know Your 2022-23 WAA: Charlotte Chapter Board Members

Tiffany Lee, Chapter President
Graduated: 2007 (Journalism)
Favorite UW Tradition: Singing “Varsity” after football games
About Me: During the pandemic, I shifted my career focus away from sports and entertainment to brand marketing, and I now work for Fleet Feet, overseeing national marketing and branding. I met my husband in Charlotte and we have three daughters (four-year-old twins and a one-year-old). I cannot wait to take them all to their first Badger football game!

Anne Harper, Chapter Vice President
Graduated: 1997 (Communication Arts)
Favorite UW Tradition: Student section at football games
Lived in Charlotte Since: 2006
About Me: I currently work as the director of programs and operations at the National Association for Catering and Events, where I help NACE members reach their professional and personal goals. Previously, I managed educational and training programs for the International Society for Pharmaceutical Engineers (ISPE) and Hallmark Corporation. I love to root for the Wisconsin Badgers and Green Bay Packers football teams with my husband, two sons and pandemic puppy. Finally, during the pandemic, I hung up my Wisconsin diploma, along with my grandfather’s Wisconsin diploma from 1951 and my great-aunt’s diploma from 1944.

Jason Rymer, Chapter Secretary
Graduated: 2001 (Chemical Engineering)
Favorite UW Tradition: Singing “Varsity” at any event
Lived in Charlotte Since: 2018
About Me: I work for 3M as a business quality manager. After graduation I lived in Lexington, Kentucky, and New Haven, Connecticut before finding a home in Charlotte. I recently moved from Elizabeth to the Plaza Shamrock neighborhood. I'm a lifelong Badger (I only applied to one school, glad I got in!), Packer fan, and former member of the UW Marching Band. I also earned my MBA from the University of Kentucky which made the 2014-2015 Badger basketball seasons interesting. I enjoy being active and outside, so there is a good chance you’ve seen me running, biking, or walking around town.

Jenny Englader, Chapter Treasurer/Fundraising/Scholarships
Graduated: 2000 (International Relations, History)
Favorite UW Tradition: My rowing teammates singing “Varsity” to each boat as it launched for a race
Lived in Charlotte Since: 2019
About Me: I left Madison to attend law school in New Orleans and ended up staying 19 years! I moved to Charlotte to take a job with TIAA and to be closer to family in North Carolina and Virginia. I hope to get back to Madison again for football and basketball games and the supper club scene!

Mckensie Harris, Volunteer Events Chair
Graduated: 2016 (Marketing and Supply Chain Management)
Favorite UW Tradition: Student section songs and traditions at football and hockey games (e.g. “Build Me Up Buttercup“ and “Jump Around“)
About Me: Following graduation, I moved to Charlotte to escape the Midwest winters and start my career with Bank of America. I met my husband shortly after moving, and we are excited to welcome our first baby in June! I recently graduated with my MBA from Queens University of Charlotte, and in my free time I enjoy being outdoors, spending time with family/friends, and cheering on the Badgers/Packers!

Kamina King, Athletics/Game Watch Chair
Graduated: 2009
Favorite UW Tradition: Having drinks with friends at the Union and attending Badger football games
Lived in Charlotte Since: 2013
About me: I moved to Charlotte a few years after I graduated because I wanted a fresh start. Charlotte was a good choice because two of my sorority sisters were living here at the time and helped me get acclimated. I have a master’s in social work, and it’s the right profession for me because I love helping people. I've been working for Centene since March 2022 as a health equity specialist, but I have worked for several nonprofits in Charlotte. I enjoy traveling with friends, watching my nephews play football, and trying new restaurants around Charlotte. My favorite teams are the Green Bay Packers and Wisconsin Badgers, but I do watch all NFL teams during the regular football season. On, Wisconsin!

O’Shae Best, Awards & Recognition Chair
Graduated: 2019 (Master of Music: Wind Conducting)
Favorite UW Tradition: 5th Quarter with the band on the field!
Lived in Charlotte Since: 2019. Born and raised in North Carolina, lived just outside of Charlotte for three years, moved to Wisconsin for graduate school, and now I am back in Charlotte!
About Me: I am an instrumental music teacher here in Charlotte with eight years total experience! I participate in sports around the city, specifically sand and indoor volleyball, kickball, and occasionally cornhole. I enjoy all the breweries around, like Hi-Wire, and showing my friends you cannot spell Wisconsin without WIN. I always enjoy my summer returns to Madison and sitting on the Terrace with some Spotted Cow!
