It was a competitive process with many excellent candidates, but the Student Professional Development Center is very pleased to welcome Beth and Latisha to the team as the 2015-2016 Career Advising Fellows!  Keep reading to learn more about our talented additions to the team!

Originally from Bucks County, PA, Beth Mannella attended James Madison University where she obtained a Bachelor’s of Business Administration degree in Management with a minor in Human Resource Development. While attending James Madison University, Beth worked in residence life and found her calling in higher education, which led to pursuing a career in student affairs. Beth has spent the last two years at Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, completing her Master’s degree in College Student Personnel Administration and working in the Office of Residence Life, with practicum experiences in the Business Career Center and New Student and Family Programs. She is thrilled to join Elon University and work with students and staff in the Career Services Advising Fellowship. For fun, Beth enjoys reading blogs and books, cooking, planning travel adventures, and attending baseball games at all 30 MLB stadiums (she has been to 10 stadiums already)! Beth is looking forward to leaving the Midwest winters and experiencing the beauty of Elon University and North Carolina.

From Richmond, Virginia, Latisha Taylor, is more than excited for her move down to North Carolina to help the students of Elon achieve their dream careers. Latisha attended Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Virginia where she double majored in Psychology and Human Services. During that time is when she became heavily involved in social and community service organizations, which peaked her interest and eventually her passion for  Student Affairs. Latisha went on to complete her Master’s degree in Higher Education at George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia where she worked as a Graduate Assistant in Housing and Residence Life and a Graduate Intern at University Career Services. Latisha is a member of the National Association of Student Personnel Administrators (NASPA) and Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. In her free time, Latisha enjoys shopping, watching Netflix, and hanging out with friends and family.
