PSP Alumni Plan to Meet on July 12

PSP alums Lyn Brownfeld ’07, Ernie Abeytia ’11, and Lisa Gillim ’04

On Tuesday evening, June 14, PSP alums Ernie Abeytia ’11, Lyn Brownfeld ’07 and Lisa Gillim ’04 met with Tina Fairbairn, (Alumni and Community Relations) to discuss their career paths, PSP experiences, and networking with other PSP alums.
