In this role, Ms. Jewell will work closely with Dr. Cortes, his Chief of Staff and his cabinet to manage internal and external communications from the President’s Office.

Utilizing her experience in marketing and communications, Ms. Jewell has served as a professional speaker, guest lecturer, mentor and workshop instructor to business associations, colleges and universities.
