Another year has passed, and here we are, once surprisingly again, to hand over the career advising fellow baton to our new fellow! But, first, before the baton is officially passed, I would like to spend a brief moment to honor and recognize all of the great work that our 10th fellow – Alysia McGlone – has accomplished over this very unique, and very virtual academic year. This academic year for all of us in the Student Professional Development Center has been a year of many, many firsts and new opportunities to stretch and grow in our work. Alysia was, fortunately, not fearful of this year and took the virtual career advising space by its wings to see what could happen. New programming, new ideas, and new perspectives. Thank you Alysia for your ideas and for your commitment to the SPDC and to the students that you’ve connected with!
Now, let’s pass this baton! I’m thrilled to welcome and introduce our next Career Advising Fellow, Corinne Townley. We are so excited to welcome Corinne in early August for training, and then, hit the ground running when the students return back to campus. Big things ahead!
Let’s learn a bit more about Corinne:
Corinne Townley was born and raised in the Queen City of Charlotte, North Carolina. After high school, she attended Appalachian State University where she obtained her Bachelors of Science in Child Development. At the end of her junior year, she realized child development was not her passion, so she decided to pursue her master’s in Higher Education Administration. She attended William & Mary, where she became a board member of the Higher Education Student Association, advisor for the First-Generation/Low-Income Student Group, and worked in the Career Center. During her assistantship at the Cohen Career Center, she fell in love with empowering students on their career journeys. She graduated from William & Mary in May of 2021 and is thrilled to be joining the SPDC! In her free time, Corinne enjoys playing guitar, snowboarding, drinking coffee with her friends, and playing with her cat, Zoey.
