Name: Leslie Jennings Rowley

Position: Associate director for alumni education and executive manager of Princeton Journeys in the Office of the Alumni Association. Leading the office's alumni education unit, which develops and implements online, in-person and travel-related educational programming for alumni and friends.

Quote: "Everyone says I have the best job, and they might be right. I get to interact with members of the faculty in a variety of departments and strategize how to share their stories with alumni. Through our various programs — held on campus, through the Web or around the world — I help alumni reconnect with each other and the University. And, traveling with Princeton Journeys, I have the opportunity to open the world to Princetonians, showing them how students, faculty and other alumni can and do live lives 'in the service of all nations.' Not bad for a day's work."

Outside interests: Laughing and adventuring with husband Clancy (a faculty member in mechanical and aerospace engineering at Princeton) and their two young children. Traveling. Practicing yoga. Revisiting the cello after many years of not playing.
