Meet the Team

Michelle Curtin

Michelle Curtin

Director of Alumni Relations and Advancement Communications

I joined the Alumni Relations team in 2008. After earning a master’s degree in Education at Suffolk University, I worked for several years in higher education as an academic counselor, engaging with students one on one and teaching freshman seminar courses. I am passionate about the educational experience. Working in Exeter's Office of Institutional Advancement has allowed me to expand my understanding of the educational experience and discover the impact it can have on students’ lives long after they have graduated.

My road to Exeter was paved by business, tradition and family.

Jan Woodford

I grew up locally and spent a lot of free time in Exeter as a teenager. The Ioka and Friendly’s were favorite hangouts. I commuted to UNH from home and was fortunate to be able to spend many hours in the Academy library studying and meeting students from around the world.
