The Virginia native has worked in communications as a consultant and in higher education, health care and environmental organizations. Coxe was most recently the senior associate director of employer and alumni relations at Bates College, where she played a key role in Bates’ Purposeful Work Initiative and worked with employers to develop and promote job and internship opportunities for Bates students and recent graduates.
