Meet the hardworking members of the alumnae class council of 2012!
I moved to London directly after graduation for an internship and then job at a market intelligence firm and consultancy called Cleantech Group. My main focus is managing the Group's European and Asian clients, which I find fun and involves a good amount of traveling and discovery of new places and ways of doing business. That being said, I try to spend as much of my free time as possible exploring the exciting city that is London and would love to do this alongside more 2012 alums.

After a bit of a whirlwind of a year after graduation, I decided to calm down and join the startup world as the founder of Sisasa. We're aiming to increase young adult financial literacy and confidence by creating a mobile banking application for community banks & credit unions that uses gamification and social mechanics to motivate us (the so-called Millennials) to learn and engage in our finances. In essence: we help community banks & credit unions help young adults. If you're digging this or want to talk startups or whatever, email me :) For the time being, assume I am in Michigan, and I love meeting up with alums in the area!
After an internship in "the place where dreams come true" (Walt Disney World), I am back in the Bay Are and working with the marketing team of a Silcon Valley-based software company, 7. While my primary focus is managing our PR and Analyst Relations, I also enjoy learning about project management and how to coordinate and facilitate various schedules and opinions. Group projects and leadership positions at Wellesley gave me a good background for that part of the job! When not working, I try to absorb as much of the Bay Area as possible with my family and friends.
This is Amy, your current Treasurer welcoming everyone to another toasty summer! While working for a solar panel manufacturing company, I'm also learning a bit of acro yoga. Maybe this week I'll master the skill of not falling over.
