Marie, who joined the Career Center in 1987, advises students in the College of Arts and Sciences. She helps students, whose majors range from anthropology to women’s, gender, and sexuality studies, to prepare their application materials and find challenging internship positions that qualify for academic credit. She also advises on career planning, job search strategies, resume design, interview techniques, and networking. Additionally, Marie interprets the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, an instrument students may find helpful as they explore majors and careers that might match their personality traits and interests.
In addition to advising, Marie tracks trends and tools in new media to monitor their value for job searching, networking, and education. Her passions also extend beyond advising - she loves all art forms and is even a licensed pilot for single-engine planes! Her diverse life experiences include her work at AU, as well as in teaching, social work, city planning, arts administration, and fundraising.
