We’re back from vacation with Episode 63! This week we talk with Lisa Kelsay, Assistant Dean of Liberal Arts and Director of Academic Arts at Moraine Valley Community College. We begin the show by chatting about our morning commutes, and the struggles of choosing to live in a bustling city, or moving closer to campus. Jackie and Lisa both studied abroad in Italy during their undergraduate years, and talk about what they loved best about the experience. Lisa shares with us “a day in the life,” which, as we all know, is different depending on the day. She explains her current work, which includes dealing with parents and giving out exciting awards to her students. When this episode was recorded, Lisa was preparing for the Espirit de She Triathalon, which she has since completed, and shaved over 17 minutes off her race time from last year!
