Isabelle Helmich

Associate Director of Development


  • Bachelor's, Penn State



I began working in development shortly after my graduation from Penn State’s College of the Liberal Arts. I helped facilitate annual support for causes across all of Penn State’s colleges, campuses, and units before joining the Donald P. Bellisario College of Communications in May 2019. I am currently enrolled in graduate coursework in Community and Economic Development through Penn State’s World Campus.

Growing up I was a camper and counselor at a non-profit Quaker camp outside of Philadelphia, Camp Onas. I also worked on an urban farm in Philadelphia, growing food alongside local youth. These experiences inspired my affinity for non-profit work, the outdoors, and community-driven change. When I'm not traveling to meet with alumni, you can catch me outside in my vegetable garden.
