Emilee Saunders Joins Lally Student Services

Emilee Saunders

We are excited to welcome Emilee Saunders to the Lally School as a senior student services administrator! In this role, she will support Lally’s graduate students and will work with various divisions across campus to provide a seamless interface between graduate students, Lally, and the Office of Graduate Education.

Emilee was attracted to Rensselaer because she has always been interested in working in higher education. She is passionate about learning and helping other people, so this position was the perfect opportunity for her to learn and grow in her career.

Prior to coming to Rensselaer, Emilee was an assistant manager at Chipotle Mexican Grill. While Chipotle was a fast-paced environment, she wasn’t able to showcase her administrative abilities. Her new position in Lally is fast-paced, but in a new and different way. She is very happy to be here to help students!

Some fun facts about Emilee:

  • She is originally from Salem, New York, where there are more cows than people. She has four pets — a dog and three cats. 
  • Her hobbies include hiking, traveling, yoga, and spending quality time with her family.
  • She is a newlywed! She was married in April in Wilmington, North Carolina.
