Meet Your Alumna Mentor

Spanning the gamut of industries and experiences, your fellow alumnae can offer invaluable advice as you define and pursue your goals, whether you’re negotiating your first contract or thinking about making a big career change.

Mentorship is that final piece of the puzzle. It helps you translate what you learned in the classroom and on campus to a professional environment.
