Tell us about your career. What does a typical workday look like for you?

I serve as divisional chief of staff for a global telecommunication technology and services company. I ensure the company stays on track to achieve our growth objectives. I do this by ensuring our strategy is well communicated, that we have the right people in the right roles, and that they have the guidance and tools they need to be successful. 

Can you speak to how Dickinson’s useful liberal-arts education helped you in your life?

The liberal-arts education I received from Dickinson enabled me to be creative problem solver and alliance builder. Seeking a diversity of opinions for how to tackle challenges often yields great solutions.  

What inspired your gift to Dickinson?

Dickinson is less of a four-year college and more of lifetime journey for the mind and the heart. Dickinson has positively impacted my personal and professional life in so many ways. I appreciated the opportunity to express my gratitude by giving back. 

Why do you feel that it is important to give back to Dickinson? 

For Dickinsonians, giving a gift is another way to continue the connection with this great institution and community.

What is your favorite memory from your time at Dickinson?

My favorite memory was the Mermaid Players production of “Into the Woods” where I—a nearly 6-foot tall freshman—got to play Little Red Ridinghood. I couldn’t have encountered a more welcoming, hard-working, and fun group of people. 

Can you tell us about what you do outside of work—hobbies, interests, etc.?

Outside of work, I am still very active in my sorority—Kappa Alpha Theta—of which I became a member my sophomore year at Dickinson. Today, I serve on Theta Foundation’s board of trustees, and for a number of years, I served as an advisor to the Dickinson chapter of Theta. 

What is one piece of advice you would give to today’s students?

I advise students to get involved on campus outside of the classroom. When it came time to find my first job, it was the leadership roles I served in campus organizations (such as Orientation Committee, Omicron Delta Kappa, Theta, and Mermaid Players) that made prospective employers take notice.
