UW Alumni Tours staff

Pauline Ranieri, Director

Pauline Ranieri has directed the UW Alumni Tours program for more than 20 years. Under her leadership, the program has grown into one of the largest and most successful alumni travel programs in the U.S. Prior to joining the UW Alumni Association, Pauline served as tour manager and operations supervisor with Contiki America and as tour manager with Contiki Europe. She holds a bachelor’s degree in journalism from the University of Montana. Her travels have taken her to the Galapagos Islands, all over Europe, Vietnam, South Africa, Egypt, China, Australia, New Zealand, Peru, India, Botswana, Myanmar and Zanzibar.

 

Nichole McGrew, Associate Director

Nichole McGrew joined the UW Alumni Tours team in 2016. She grew up in Australia and has since traveled across six continents, visiting numerous countries such as Cambodia, Japan, Morocco, Costa Rica, much of Western Europe, and beyond. As a Denverite, she worked for the Globus Family of Brands, an international tour operator as well as several companies in corporate, government, and non-profit industries. Nichole graduated from the University of Denver with a degree in International Business and brings with her over 15 years of experience in operations, product management and communications/marketing.

 

Kate Salisbury, Tours Coordinator

Kate joined the UW Alumni Tours team in 2019. She grew up in Bellingham, WA and is a UW alum, class of 2011. After graduating from the UW with a degree in Spanish and English, she moved to Spain. The idea was to stay for just the academic year, teaching English in a public school, but she ended up staying for 6 years and completing a master’s degree in Tourism at the University of Santiago de Compostela. Before coming to the UW, she worked for a Spanish wine importer here in Seattle, and still loves to gush about all things wine (and what to eat with it).
