At a young age, Dr. Somerville was encouraged and challenged by her parents and educators to set lofty goals. She coupled that life advice with a strong work ethic to establish a career path focused on serving others and making an impact. An early defining experience that sparked an interest in leadership; she served as a residence advisor/supervisor of a college dormitory when she was an undergraduate student. As president, Dr, Somerville’s collaborative leadership approach enables her to build partnerships with businesses, government entities, and educational institutions. Providing students with learning and career opportunities that tap into their interests and skills is an area of emphasis.
