She is a member of the CALS Dean’s Advisory Council and serves on the CALS Alumni Career Link. Since 1994, she has annually sponsored Cornell student externs and interns at the three companies she has founded. “I especially enjoy sponsoring and working with Cornell students who shadow me and work as interns in their chosen field of study,” says Marrone.
