How did you get to Middlebury? I began my career in higher education in 1986 after graduating from Champlain College.  I landed my first job at the Dean of Students Office at Middlebury working for Erica Wonnaccott who was the first “Dean of Students” at Middlebury and was one of the first women in the country to hold such a position.  I have had many roles since leaving the Dean of Students Office at Middlebury.  I worked in the Residential Life Office, The Commons Office, Student Activities Office and now the Center for Careers and Internships where I enjoy supporting our Middlebury students in my role as Senior Internship Coordinator.

Who do you work with? What is your favorite part of the job? I work with our team of CCI staff, employers, alumni, parents, students, faculty, staff, and College Advancement.    The best part of my job is interacting with students, administering funding for their unpaid internship and hearing their stories after their internship experience. 

What is the best career advice anyone has given you? Find something you enjoy doing.

What is your favorite campus resource? Middpoints.

Interests/Hobbies: Walking with my dog, Louie (Make sure to follow #DogsOfCCI on social media), boating on Lake Dunmore, skiing and spending time with my family.
