I am proud to be the University of Hartford’s first Director of Strategic Partnerships, a role that evolved from our strategic planning process as a way to continue to integrate high quality and mutually beneficial partnerships into our University of Hartford fabric, identity, and culture.
I hold a Bachelor of Arts in Government from Bates College and a Juris Doctor from Suffolk University Law School. Before joining the University of Hartford, I practiced law and worked as a law firm administrator. After almost 30 years in the legal profession, I joined the University of Hartford as Assistant Director, Student and Alumni Engagement.
In that role, I established and cultivated relationships with employers, alumni, and parents, and created internship, full-time employment, and mentoring opportunities for students and alumni. Through my involvement with programs like Express to Success, our alternative spring break job shadow program; the Mock Interview Week at the Barney School of Business; and career-ready events for the College of Engineering, Technology, and Architecture, I began the work of developing new—and enhancing existing—partnerships.
I am excited to share my experience with you as we work together to strengthen existing partnerships and to cultivate new ones. I look forward to exploring ways in which the University and your organization can work together for the greater benefit of those we serve.
