Erika JuengstErika Juengst

Director of Alumni Relations & Annual Giving
Office of External Affairs
Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health

A native of Colorado, Erika moved to Baltimore, Maryland to pursue her graduate degree in vocal performance from the Peabody Institute at Johns Hopkins University. After graduating from Peabody, she spent many years performing in the area, managing a non-profit arts organization, and having two kids. There came a point when she decided to get what musicians call a “real job” and was delighted to find a perfect fit within Development and Alumni Relations at Peabody.

After five years, she was looking for a new professional challenge, so jumped at the chance to become the Alumni Relations Director at the Johns Hopkins School of Nursing. Her years of experience within the broader Hopkins community along with a deep respect for the impact of nursing within healthcare led her to her current role at the Bloomberg School of Public Health, where she is eager to help build alumni engagement across the globe.

As she kicks off her first year at BSPH, she will be focusing her energy on strengthening alumni engagement opportunities around the world. Great work has been done to establish various city networks over the past year, and she looks forward to building on this momentum by meeting alumni, listening to their stories, learning more about what they would find most beneficial, and then facilitating opportunities – both online and in person – to connect them with each other, with students, and with the school.

Fun fact: she is a soprano and still performs on a rare occasion!

Associate Director of Alumni Relations
Office of External Affairs
Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health

Originally from Alabama, Leslie Procter first came to Baltimore to pursue a master’s degree at the Peabody Institute of Johns Hopkins University. She quickly fell in love with Baltimore and the amazing community in which she found herself. As a student engaged in a wide variety of academic and administrative departments, Leslie became eager to understand what makes institutions thrive. As a professional, she now dedicates her work to strengthening organizations aligned with her own passions. She found her niche as part of the development and alumni relations team at Peabody where she served Peabody’s alumni and friends for five years before moving to JHSPH in November 2018.

Personally and professionally, Leslie thrives on connecting with people who are passionate about their work and compelled to share their knowledge. Her experience collaborating with other artists and teaching cross-disciplinary seminar classes has taught her how much a community can accomplish when it pools its strengths in service of a shared goal.

A perennial student, Leslie looks forward to learning about your path and purpose in life. The focus and direction of Dean MacKenzie’s strategic plan energize Leslie about the future. She can’t wait to find a way for you to play a meaningful part in the work of the school, as we come together to unleash the power of public health.

On the weekends, you can find Leslie performing or playing anything from Bach to bluegrass, or in her happiest place, acting as a tree planting and maintenance volunteer for Blue Water Baltimore.
