Assistant Director of Communications and Outreach | Staff Council Representative for Disctrict C
- Additional Programs
- Center for Careers and Internships
How did you get to Middlebury? I started my career in higher ed back in 2002 when I worked in Admissions at Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle, WA. From there I have worked at UNC-Asheville (in the Dean of Students Office), then Warren Wilson College (managing the Swannanoa Gathering) and now at the CCI at Middlebury College. I moved back home to Vermont in 2013 and have been happy to be closer to family, and supporting Midd’s phenomenal students.
Who do you work with? What is the best part of your job? I am one of the few people at CCI who works with almost everyone on staff. Given my role in communications and outreach, I share stories from the whole center, but also have the pleasure of working with our student staff, working as part of the team for Midd2Midd, and I am the Staff Council Representative for District C. My favorite part of the job is interacting with students on CCI’s social media accounts and sharing their job and internship stories.
What is the best career advice anyone has given you? Find a mentor and be a mentor. You’ll learn a great deal from both of these experiences and make sure to leverage these roles for networking. Ask your mentor for introductions, and introduce the person that you’re mentoring to others—both will increase your visibility. Check out Midd2Midd to reach out to alumni in your areas of interest.
What is your favorite campus resource? This seems like an obvious answer given I manage the social media accounts, but CCI’s social media accounts are a great way to stay in touch with what is happening day-to-day here at CCI! (You can check out our social media accounts at the links below).
Interests/Hobbies: Outside of work I can be found running, hiking, practicing yoga, or taking pictures.
Why Staff Council? I joined Staff Council summer of 2022 with the hope that I could stay connected, and help to bring forth better communication. My goal is to ensure the staff voice is heard and maximized in decisions that affect us. I am hoping Staff Council will continue to serve as a positive influence on campus as we contribute to solutions and conversations about the short and long-term goals of the community.
