UW Retirement Association

UWRA Staff

UWRA has three staff members who work with member-volunteers to produce the organization’s events and communications. The staff also works on behalf of the UW to support and inform all UW retirees.

Stefanie Starkovich joined UWRA as executive director in March 2020. Over the course of her 20-year career at UW she has gained a deep appreciation and profound respect for the faculty and staff who serve UW’s public mission. Her work with UWRA is focused on identifying and strengthening opportunities for continued engagement between the university, our students, and retired faculty and staff.

Cathy Randolph has worked at UWRA since January 2010. She grew up near the UW and is the child of two alums. Before starting at UWRA, Cathy taught high school English, taught and did research at Vanderbilt University’s Peabody College, and spent time as an at-home parent to two boys. She is UWRA’s associate director. Cathy’s goal is that all UW retirees will feel welcomed by UWRA and see it as their own personal campus resource.

Jennifer Small stepped into the role of interim associate director in the fall of 2019. In 2020 she became UWRA’s first Manager for Member & Board Services. Jen previously worked on University Advancement’s constituent relations team. She enjoys helping UW retirees and working with UWRA’s active, engaged board.
