Appointment TV

It’s 10 p.m. on a Wednesday, and I’ve settled into a seat in the darkened theater in the basement of Keefe Campus Center. I’m clutching a large decaf from Schwemm’s coffeehouse and listening to the whispers of the students in the audience. We’re about to watch the new episode of Lost projected onto the big screen.

I love my job.

Work: I am currently the Director of Class and Constituent Programs in the Office of Alumni and Parent Programs here at Amherst. I work with the 25th Reunion class, help to develop programs and initiatives that connect Amherst alumni and students with one another in new ways and oversee our online initiatives.

What I like to do in my free time: Free time? What's that? With 2 kids-see photos page- and a full time job free time is hard to come by!
