College Activities: I played varsity ice hockey during my first two years and was a resident assistant during my sophomore year. In the fall of my junior year, I studied abroad in Chile and returned to an internship in non-profit fundraising at the Hill Museum and Manuscript Library. Working for a college mentoring initiative in surrounding communities, the Fast Forward Youth Program, we were - proudly - the Student Employment Team of the Year for two consecutive years! In addition, I loved singing with the Campus Singers and Chamber Choirs! During the summers, I worked as a counselor for the Youth in Theology and Ministry program. I am most proud of my Honors Senior Thesis and the Fulbright Research Fellowship to Mexico that I was awarded immediately after graduation.
Fun Facts about Carliene: I am a social worker! I completed my graduate degree in social work from the University of Texas at El Paso in 2013, and I have worked in with children, students, and families in schools, hospitals, and churches before returning to campus as an Admission Representative. I was born and raised in St. Cloud (a proud 2003 Cathedral High School graduate). After living in Mexico, Texas, Colorado, and Arizona during the ten years following graduation from CSB/SJU, I couldn't be happier to be near family and represent this one-of-a-kind college-and university!
