Staff

Marjorie Mosereiff, Career Services Specialist

Since joining AAP Connect in the fall of 2014, Marjorie has enjoyed helping students throughout their whole professional development process including resume and cover letter reviews, career exploration, and program planning. She believes in fostering self-empowerment strategies within students so they may use them not only during their time at Cornell, but also after they graduate. Another passion is connecting with and maintaining relationships with alumni to see how they have progressed in their career. Marjorie also trains and collaborates with the team of Peer Career Advisors. Her favorite part is witnessing the advisors' self-awareness and new found perspectives on their own career development path when they help other students. Prior to joining AAP, Marjorie was a high school social studies teacher. She's worked and done research in Russia, Ecuador, and Myanmar/Burma and lived in Thailand for two years. Marjorie loves hiking and biking around Ithaca with her wife and two sons. She holds a masters in Southeast Asian Studies from Cornell University.

Kellen is a sophomore majoring in Urban and Regional Studies from Ossining, NY, with a minor in Public Policy. This last summer, Kellen completed a research internship with HR&A Advisors exploring the role of American urban space in current and historical social movements, and how urban institutions can shed their complicity in the suppression of public political dissent. His academic interests explore how we tell stories and narratives of land, through maps, science fiction, land tenure systems, and other mediums. While his main focuses lie within the worlds of urban studies and geography, Kellen also has deep interests across the A, A, and P, such as in public art, mapmaking as an artform, and histories of architecture.  On campus, he’s a McNair Scholar, and has been involved with AAP’s Diversity and Inclusion Committee, Collective X (Cornell’s magazine addressing the intersection of fashion, media, and social justice), the Organization for Urban and Regional Studies, and AAP Ambassadors.

He is a Resident Advisor for the Court-Kay-Bauer residential hall; an executive board member of both AAP Ambassadors and CU IMAGE: admissions organizations targeted toward AAP and BIPOC students respectively; and is currently an Engaged Cornell Oral History Fellow with the History Center in Tompkins County, conducting interviews with local leaders surrounding the socioeconomic challenges of COVID-19.
