She returned as a regular Clark employee in February 2012 and enjoys her role in Student Leadership and Programming assisting students with club accounting and financial matters. Kirsten’s daughter is also a “Clarkie” enrolled as an undergraduate student! Kirsten is a Worcester native and graduate of Worcester State College.
