Melissa VanWinkle

As a mentor of undergraduate studies and the Faculty Academic Coordinator of the Alfred unit, I have the pleasure of working with students from all Areas of Study. In the business arena, I bring 30 years of sales, marketing and leadership experience into my coursework. I have had the pleasure of being invited to corporations to present corporate trainings.  These experiences also help add to the depth of knowledge I bring to my students. One of the most enjoyable aspects of my position is in helping students reach their academic goals to help them pursue their future dreams. My experience of teaching at the higher educational level includes a private university, two year, and four-year SUNY colleges. In addition to my ten years of teaching here at ESC, I am also an alumna of ESC and understand the unique circumstances our adult learners go through in order to be successful graduates.
