BIOGRAPHY

Sara Dell joined CO-OPS + CAREERS in May of 2015 with over 10 years of college career services and human resources experience.  She grew up in Swarthmore, PA and went to University of Chicago for her Bachelors of Arts degree in Anthropology.  She obtained her Master’s degree in Anthropology from University of Virginia.  Sara previously worked in both large corporations as well as startups in banking, marketing, entertainment and green technology.  In industry, she built internship and co-op programs and found her favorite part of the job was working with co-op students.  This realization prompted a career shift to career services in Higher Education.  Sara previously worked at Illinois Institute of Technology in Chicago helping Engineering and Technology students prepare them for successful careers and more recently, advised Mechanical Engineering and Mechanical Engineering Technology students at Wentworth.  She delights in supporting students and alumni and working with her colleagues and partners of the CO-OP + CAREERS office.

Unique fact:
She relocated back to Boston to be closer to friends and family after living in Chicago for many years.
