Janessa Hargrave

Manager of Admissions Information Systems


B.S. Clarkson University

M.S. Clarkson University


I have lived in Northern New York in the St. Lawrence River Valley for most of my life. I graduated from Clarkson University in 2006 with a B.S. in information systems, followed by an M.S. in information technology in 2012. I started my career working in higher education as a web designer and have transitioned to managing and customizing software systems for admissions teams. I thrive on process efficiency, innovation and improving the end-user experience. My goals are focused on making the process from inquiry through application intuitive and personalized.

When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my husband, two daughters and dog. We enjoy all things outdoors, from exploring the Adirondack Mountains to boating on the St. Lawrence River. My hobbies include gardening, baking with my girls, reading and crocheting.
