Laura Thibodeau


Laura joined Merrimack in the Spring of 2013 and provides comprehensive career guidance and support to students within the School of Science and Engineering.  Prior to joining Merrimack, Laura worked as a Student Services Coordinator at a private college planning company guiding high school students and families through the college application and admissions process.  Laura earned her BA in Human Development from Boston College and an MS in Counseling from Fitchburg State University.  Laura is also a CCE credentialed Global Career Development Facilitator (GCDF) and licensed School Counselor.

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


I wished that I had learned about the power of networking and how helpful informational interviews can be.  Had I known, I think I would have been able to make much more informed career decisions for myself.  I try to impart this knowledge to my students and stress the importance of career exploration early on and throughout the four years so that when they graduate they feel confident and ready to take the next steps towards their future career.

Walk-in hours with Laura are Mondays and Thursdays from 1-3pm in the Mendel Center Lobby.
