A 1966 graduate of the University, Champlin has been at the helm of the Career Development Center for nearly 24 years. When it was formed in 1968, the center was the first career counseling service for women in Connecticut, and one of the very first in the nation. Over the years its focus has changed, and people seeking the center’s services now include men and women from all over Connecticut, of all ages and backgrounds.
Under Champlin’s leadership, the center experienced many significant changes, including the development of Project CRECER in 1984, the Entrepreneurial Center in 1985, and the After–School Computer Camp in 1993.
She takes great pride in the fact that the Career Development Center remains such a vital community resource, Champlin told the Hartford Business Journal.
Champlin’s advice for young women just starting their careers?
“Believe in yourself. Learn from others. Think positively. Trust that there will be answers. Seek help and advice along the way. We can never know all the answers.”
