In this post we’ll introduce you to two new members of the Middlebury College staff who are working in Library and Information Services and the Admissions office. Please join us as we welcome Wendy and Sara to campus!
Wendy Shook was hired as the new Science Data Librarian in LIS in August. Wendy has a BSc in Physics and Astronomy from the University of Victoria, BC, Canada. She was employed at Kitt Peak National Observatory in Arizona and Gemini Observatory in Hawaii for many years and earned her MIS in 2011 at Charles Sturt University, NSW, Australia. Wendy shares that relocating from Hawaii to Vermont has been a grand adventure for the whole family!
Sara Cohen returned to the Admissions Office as an Admissions Counselor in August. During her senior year at Middlebury, Sara worked as a Senior Fellow in the office, and was able to get a small taste of the work of Emma Willard House. Sara shares that she loved her time at Middlebury as a student, and is excited to meet new prospective students and represent Middlebury in the territories she travels to, including parts of Texas and the southeast. She also enjoys being a permanent resident of Middlebury, and venturing further afield in Vermont than she had time to do as a student, particularly exploring new roads and trails and trying new restaurants!
