Biosketch

Kerry began her higher education career working in residence life.  After serving as a student life coordinator and a director of residence life, she went to work in the corporate sector.  Her experience in this arena lasted only a couple years as it became apparent that working with college students was her true passion. Upon returning to higher education, she found a role that would allow her to blend her new found knowledge of the corporate world with her background in student development ñ career services. 
She has served as the director of career services at a liberal arts college and at a college with a focus on aviation and engineering.  She has guided students through the process of identifying their skills and interests, developing job search credentials, and interacting with employers in career fair and interview settings. She looks forward to continuing to work with students as they prepare for their professional careers.  

Areas of Expertise and Professional Interests

Kerry is interested in guiding students through the career development process from the early steps of discovering skills and interests through learning to conduct a comprehensive job search. Kerry specifically coaches and instructs Mechanical Engineering and Manning School of Business undergraduate students enrolled in the Professional Co-op Program.
