Deb served in a variety of career services leadership roles at University of Oregon Career Center for over thirty years first as associate director of the centralized Career Center, then as director of Career Services at the Lundquist College of Business supporting MBAs and finally as director of the Career Center.

She also led the inaugural strategic planning process for the division of student affairs as well as internally at the career center. Although formally retired, Deb has discovered that she is not very good at retirement and remains active in the field consulting with the UO graduate students in the applied sciences and leading review teams of career services operations for two major universities.
Deb has had the privilege of serving as president of the National Association of Colleges and Employers and the Western Association of Colleges and Employers where she grew as a leader, led many significant initiatives on behalf of the profession and developed friendships that will last a lifetime. She was inducted into the NACE Academy of Fellows in 2012 as well as receiving a Life Membership from her regional association (MPACE).

Before joining LMU, Branden held similar leadership roles in career services at St. Olaf College, Tufts University, and Harvard University. His work in the field of career services has been featured in USA Today, the Wall Street Journal, the Education Advisory Board, and the book Will College Pay Off? by Peter Cappelli of the Wharton School of Business.

In 2011, Beth returned to Franklin & Marshall College (F&M), her alma mater, charged with reenvisioning the way the college prepares students for life, and not just work, after college. This challenge resulted in the creation of F&M’s Office of Student and Post-Graduate Development (OSPGD). Launched in 2012, OSPGD absorbed F&M’s Career Services office, along with its Health, Legal and Engineering Professions Advising systems, created an Alumni Advising and Development division to support alumni well beyond graduation, and adopted the broader mission of preparing students and graduates for lives of meaning and success during and well after college. Beth currently leads OSPGD, which engages students beginning in their first year with programs on financial literacy, public speaking, and networking, and continues to support them through and beyond their time at F&M with career advisement and professional development no matter their industry of choice.
Prior to returning to F&M, Beth practiced law for several years with Fox Rothschild LLP, handling commercial, employment and construction litigation matters. Beth’s legal career was preceded by a career with Randstad North America, an international personnel placement firm, where she worked her way up from the role of recruiter to the position of market recruiting manager. While at Randstad, Beth taught career-skills and job-training seminars for workforce development programs, created a training division that provided employment counseling to people looking to make career transitions, and trained the company’s Pennsylvania staff on candidate recruitment, placement and retention practices.
