Chemistry Alumnae Career Panel Engage Chemistry & BCMB Majors

To round out National Chemistry Week at Ursinus College, the chemistry department hosted a Career Panel with three alumnae, Christina Lippe ’10, Kelsey McNeely ’05 and Sruthi King ’97, on Friday, October 23rd (Mole Day).

Via Zoom, Christina Lippe, Kelsey McNeely and Sruthi (née Tallapragada) King joined our faculty, students and staff in Pfahler Hall’s Musser Auditorium as well as those attending virtually.

Christina Lippe is an ophthalmologist at Eye Consultants of Pennsylvania, Kelsey McNeely is a biofuels R&D program leader at ExxonMobil, and Sruthi King is an associate director of toxicology and pharmacology at the US Food and Drug Administration’s office of generic drugs.

By way of introduction, each alumna shared their career paths from graduate or medical school to their current positions.

The career panel was moderated by department chair, Amanda Reig, who posed a variety of questions in a round-robin fashion to our panelists: questions about their careers, questions about their Ursinus experience and any advice to offer our students.

Once again, our alumnae career panelists were a wellspring of information and encouragement to our students as they talked about their time at Ursinus and beyond.
