Katie Fell

Katie joined Merrimack in 2016 and is the Assistant Director of Career Advising in the O’Brien Center for students in the School of Liberal Arts. Before Merrimack, Katie worked for the Faculty of Arts & Sciences’ Office of Career Services at Harvard University for 7 years and has worked in the public K-12 system in Hillsborough County, Florida.

Katie has earned a Bachelor of Science in Family & Child Sciences from Florida State University, and a Master of Arts in Teaching, Social Studies Education from the University of South Florida.

What does Katie wish she knew about career development when she was in college?  

“I wish I knew that the school even HAD a career center; that there are internships for ALL majors; and how my extensive full-time job in college could be poised and marketed on my resume. That lack of knowledge has shaped what I do today by driving me to make our office visible, accessible, and approachable to all students at the College, regardless of major, minor, status, affinity, gender, sexuality, background, race, ethnicity, etc. ”
