Miriam Butt '87
I graduated in 1987. I double majored in CS and Language Studies - my advisor at the time was Annette Herskovits. I still very much appreciate my CS education, which included learning Assembly and theoretically knowing about how to use punch cards. When I graduated, I had the opportunity of working in the CS department at (I think) the very first intern until 1988. I corrected HWs for multiple classes, programmed software and also helped with the sysadmin of bambam. I was also there for the plug pulling of the DECstar and the inauguration of the VAX machine (bambam). The shift was interesting, but fun. From there I went to do a PhD in Linguistics at Stanford University, then worked in Germany in various jobs as a computational linguist and now am a Professor for Theoretical and Computational Linguistics at the University of Konstanz in Germany. If any Wellesleyites are interested in dropping by or emailing to find out about opportunities in computational linguistics, feel free.

Veera Pollard '03
Life is good in computer science even in the post-tech bust world. I have happily found a career in medical software/system analysis in the healthcare industry. Sounds really boring, but I really enjoy it! It basically suits my need for lots of different interesting projects, with serious problem-solving skills needed, but with zero programming:) I worked at Meditech for 2 years and am now at Harvard Vanguard. Anyone interested in chatting about career stuff or needing help finding work, drop me a line! cheers, Veera

Julie Weber '03
Heather West '07
I'm the new Program Associate at the Center for Democracy and Technology ( Among other things, I think I'm running the Anti-Spyware Coalition, which attempts to create definitions and best practices for anti-spyware companies. I also get to work on first and fourth amendment issues- privacy, free speech, and technology- which are exactly my interest areas. I'm incredibly excited! The office is a block from the White House- really, there is no better place for me right now. This is way better than law school, in my book! And as icing on the cake, the person who is leaving the job got a full ride to a pretty prestigious law school. So hopefully, I'll get to do that down the road anyway.
Anita Yip '07
Since graduating, I've worked in finance technology and served at youth-serving organizations through AmeriCorps. Currently, I'm back at Wellesley working in corporate and foundation relations. I'm happy to speak about my past experiences and what's happening on campus. Just send me a line.
