  • Mathematics teacher, Miss Hall’s School, Pittsfield, Mass.
  • Tanglewood/Boston Symphony Orchestra residential assistant
  • Wheaton Fund supporter

Counts on education:

“Wheaton gave me my first chance to stand in front of a classroom as a teaching assistant while I was a student. That led to many other teaching opportunities, including with the Peace Corps in Bulgaria, at boarding schools in Maine and Rhode Island, at the United Nations International School in Manhattan, and to my current school. The college gave me the chance to see the world and my place in it; the confidence to go after the jobs that I want; and the skills and experience to get those positions.”

Adds value:

“As a teacher I have the honor of making a difference in the world every day. The difference I make is in helping to inspire the generations to come and, especially, to help my students discover what they are passionate about and how they can make a positive difference in their world—whether that is within their family, themselves, their community or the entire world.”

Knows support equals success:

“Wheaton has made me the person that I am today and has helped to define and expand my sense of self. As a third-generation Wheatie, I know the importance of keeping the college strong for the success of current and future students. That’s why I contribute to the Wheaton Fund.”

  • Managing director, head of North American asset management, at Sheffield Haworth
  • Board member, 100 Women in Hedge Funds
  • Wheaton Fund supporter

Leads the way: “Sheffield Haworth is a global financial services executive search firm, and I’m a ‘head hunter.’ I was based in the Boston office, which I opened for the company five years ago. Last summer I moved to San Francisco to open our West Coast office. After graduating from Wheaton in 1993 (not a great job market at that time), I and three other Wheaties drove cross-country from Boston to California to ‘seek our fortunes.’ After a short stint at a law firm, I landed in executive recruiting in 1994 and stayed with it. Wheaton prepared me to be adventurous and inquisitive.” [Read more...]

  • Director of marketing at Renewable Energy Systems Americas, Broomfield, Colo.
  • Women of Wind Energy member
  • Wheaton Fund supporter

Supplies vision: “I work for a great renewable energy company defining and executing marketing and communication strategies, from branding to client engagement efforts—all to ensure business growth for the company. Our department also project manages various proposal submissions. I really enjoy the breadth of scope and level of influence our department has.”

Uses resources: “The education and open-minded atmosphere I experienced at Wheaton provided me with a foundation that allowed me to be very flexible and adaptable in my career choices. I have worked in a variety of industries, including a vet clinic, a major news firm, a teachers association, a police department, and now a renewable energy company. My English degree benefits me today, as my department is responsible for most of the content produced on the website, in press releases, on proposals, and in marketing collateral.”

Generates support: “I contribute to the Wheaton Fund because it’s important to ensure the same quality of learning and liberal arts experience for everyone who attends. Think back to your days at Wheaton—the professors, the classes, the activities and the friends, and how they influenced and made you who you are today. Don’t you want to help others experience the same?”
