Helping Herd: Carrie West


The Helping Herd series spotlights those who are going above and beyond to support the WPI community in these unprecedented times. This installment recognizes Carrie West, executive assistant – Global and Special Projects in the Office of the Provost.

She was nominated by Jillian Ferguson, director of marketing in Marketing Communications, who says:

“Carrie is a self-described connector - and she sure is! She is able to bring various teams together to help advance the research enterprise, whether it's in an email at 11:30pm at night or in a Zoom meeting with no agenda. She keeps things moving and communicates everything she knows to help others get up to speed.”
