Kate Dailinger and my career mentor Scott Mannion were pivotal in helping me to have conversations about what I wanted after graduation. When I came back to Wellesley in the fall I said 'I have no idea what I want to be or what I want to do,' but they helped me to narrow down and identify certain values and qualities of a post graduation opportunity that I would enjoy. The Hive also proved an incredible resource to reach out to a handful of alumnae to ask for advice and learn more about their careers and journeys after Wellesley.
