Program Manager

Phone: 814-867-6350

Colette is excited to join Conference and Institutes and brings her love of planning and executing successful events, seeing clients’ vision come to life, and working with students and adult learners.

Colette joined the Penn State Donald P. Bellisario College of Communications in 2005 and most recently served as the development assistant. Her focus was project management for events to engage alumni, students, and all stakeholders of the college, as well as solutions to business processes. Prior to working in development, Colette was the manager of internships for the college. While working in this position, she helped support more than 500 students each year as they completed for-credit internships; in doing so, she helped guide students toward their career goals, assisting them with résumés, cover letters, mock interviewing, and career fairs.

Colette earned her bachelor’s degree from Penn State Smeal College of Business.

In her spare time, Colette enjoys spending time with her family, watching her daughter compete in gymnastics, playing with the three dogs, and renovating homes. She bleeds blue and white, and you will see her supporting Penn State at football games and gymnastics meets.
