Carrie loves basketball and marketing

Carrie Toomey

My name is Carrie Toomey and I am the Art Director in the Marketing and Communications. Our office creates most the marketing publications for the University. I have been at Marywood for 18 years. I love my job and the people I work with everyday! When I am not working I am coaching or watching basketball. I have been both my daughters’ coach since they were 5 years old. My love of the game has been passed on to them. I think that sports played a huge part in my life and made me the person I am today. Something I tell them before each games is


“Work hard and good things will happen.” That holds true in life as well.

In the picture I provided, my family and I are at a UConn basketball game.

Meet Dr. Garver! Organic Chemist

dr_garverI am Deanne Dulik Garver, a faculty member in the Science Department.  I teach Organic Chemistry, Medicinal Chemistry, and the Science Capstone course for juniors and seniors.  I love to work with students, show them how chemistry impacts their daily lives and teach goofy ways to remember complex concepts.  I feel very fortunate to work among dedicated and hard working students, faculty and staff.  I am really proud of the accomplishments of our students and what they go on to do after their time here.  I also work with my husband to own and operate an organic practice raspberry and Christmas tree farm near Factoryville.  Farming is a great way to give back to both the earth and the community.  You can catch me on the summer weekends at local farmers markets in and around Scranton!

Caitlin now lives in the Big Apple- NY CITY

caitlin_custer” I graduated with my Masters in Interdisciplinary Communications in 2015. Currently working in Manhattan at a startup Artificial Intelligence/Computer Software company as a Marketing Manager and also freelance for an educational company in Pittston.

In my spare time I like to enjoy the outdoors, away from the city (hiking, kayaking, camping) and I attempt to not be too creepy when I ask the city folk if I can pet their dogs.

Photographer & friendly face, Rachel loves Scranton Culture

rachel sweeneyRachel has been the Administrative Assistant to the Associate VP of
Marketing & Communications at Marywood University for almost three years.

Everything you need to initiate with the Marketing & Communications Office starts at Rachel’s desk, where you’ll be greeted with a smile – and perhaps a savvy recommendation about the local cultural scene. She has a passion for photography and can often be seen around campus with her camera or phone in hand, looking for the next best shot. Rachel also utilizes her photography skills by posting to the @marywooduniversity Instagram page. In her spare time, Rachel likes to spend time with her family at Moosic Lakes, is a runner, enjoys reading, and of course, she is always photographing anything and everything that catches her eye.
