Maggie Kennedy, this year's Presidential Fellow in the Wellness at Dartmouth Office, returns to Hanover after graduating in 2009 with a degree in Psychology and as a member of the Women's Varsity Ice Hockey Team. Through her experiences at Dartmouth, she developed a passion for healthy living, collaboration, and helping others that led her into this opportunity in the Wellness at Dartmouth Office. Before returning to the Upper Valley, Maggie lived and worked at The Loomis Chaffee School, a boarding school in Connecticut. While at Loomis Chaffee, she coached three sports, handled dorm responsibilities, took on the role of faculty advisor to a group of students, and worked as an affiliate in the admissions office.
