Networking Dinners:

Springfield, VA - Diane Garstka P‘2019, Independent Consultant, Rodan + Fields (Self-Employed)

Job Shadowing:

Daniel Gans ‘1976, P‘, CEO, Hoboken Brownstone Company (Location: Jersey City, NJ)  Shadow Description: The experience will span the gamut from financing to environmental testing and policy issues, to new energy initiatives and community development. You will also interact with co-host George Vallone '1976, President, during your experience.

Lindsey Piecyk ‘2009, Development Coordinator; Private Voice/Piano Teacher, Theatre Horizon; Villanova University (Location: Philadelphia, PA)  Shadow Description: My job at Theatre Horizon is in Development, dealing with administrative/fundraising side of the Theatre. If we are currently in the run of a show the student could certainly sit in on rehearsal as part of the day. It would be an ideal fit for a student who is looking to get into theater and/or arts administration in general. My job as a music teacher would be great for a student who wants to see what teaching private voice/piano lessons is like, so depending on the time/day of the week, I teach in 3-7 hour windows at Villanova University. I also personally think that this would be a good fit for a student who might like to have a varied career in the arts. I can speak with them about the experience of working in performance, education, administration, fundraising, as well as the ups & downs of owning my own business (being a contractor).
