The Honors College is proud to host a discussion on post-graduation career opportunities with guest speakers Bruce Campbell, Galen Jefferson, David Seabury, and Jovanka Voyich-Kane. These presenters will share their experiences that led them to different and rewarding careers. This one-hour event will be a discussion that will allow students to question the presenters on the challenges and benefits associated with the career paths chosen. The topics to be addressed at the presentation include: (1) the progress and nature of the presenters’ careers following graduation from college; (2) the opportunities that currently exist for graduates in these fields; (3) how best to prepare for possible employment in these fields; and (4) what is it that the presenters wish someone had told them when they were in college?
Our three presenters will be:
Galen Jefferson. Galen has worked for 36 years in the design, production and sale of women’s apparel. She held various management positions at Nordstrom Inc, including a term as Co-President of the company. Most recently, she formed and operated Two Dog Island Inc., a company that designed, produced and sold casual apparel to boutiques across the United States.
David Seabury. David is a graduate of the MSU School of Architecture. David’s practice focuses primarily on residential architecture though he has completed both large scale and small scale commercial projects. He has run his own office in Bozeman for 30-plus years.
Jovanka Voyich-Kane. Jovanka is an Associate Professor at MSU’s Department of Microbiology & Immunology. Jovanka received her B.S. and Ph.D. from MSU. She received postdoctoral training at the NIH Rocky Mountain Laboratories. Jovanka performs research on host-pathogen interactions, teaches infectious diseases to medical students, and instructs MSU undergraduates in the field of medical bacteriology.
