Director of Career Services

Marie has been a member of the Waynesburg University family for 29 years, spending the last 14 in Career Services. As director, she guides services and programs that help students develop the necessary professional skills to achieve their goals, advance their professions and serve their communities. Marie's office is located on the third floor of Stover Campus Center in room 307.

How did you end up at Waynesburg University?

I moved back to the area from Clarksburg, WV, and accepted a temporary position in Admissions. Less than a year later, I was offered a full-time position. Since that time, I have received my bachelor's and MBA degrees and now lead our Career Services Center.

What's your favorite spot on campus?

Roberts Chapel is my favorite spot because it's beautiful! It's not the only place on campus, but the main place where you can worship, pray and celebrate our Father in Heaven!

What's your favorite fun fact about WU?

We were one of the first colleges to offer degrees to women!

Tell us something we may not know about your job at WU.

I was elected to be PERC (Pittsburgh Education Recruitment Consortium) President for two years running, and I am currently a member of many organizations that help connect students with employers and graduate schools.

What's your most memorable WU moment?

There are so many, but each time a student comes into my office beaming because they were selected for a full-time job or an internship - that's memorable for me!
