Hi! My name is Elizabeth Govern. I am a Senior graduating in May 2020 with a degree in Communication Studies. My hometown in Skaneateles, New York. I love being a tourist in my new city with trying new restaurants, museums, and events. I love yoga, dogs, and all things Minnesota!
At St. Kate’s I am on the Sales Team, the Philanthropy Club, and the Communications Club. When I am not at the Career Development office, I also work at the Katie Fund, raising gifts and pledges for the University.
As a Career Development team member, I am passionate about making the job search process less stressful and more successful. I help students and alumni connect to resources such as resume and cover letter help, interview prep, or the graduate school application process. Come in and see me!

Hello! My name is Evelyn Nigon and I am currently a sophomore English and Communications major at St. Kate’s. I am from Faribault Minnesota but really enjoy living and exploring the cities during the school year. Some of my favorite things to do include climbing, reading, kayaking, and spending time with friends. I have participated in the clay club on campus, but with all of the crazy changes that occurred last spring, I lost the chance to join other clubs and activities, like the study abroad program, which I plan to participate in sometime next year!
Here in the Career Development Center office, my main focus is on posting information to our social media sites. I create graphics, organize, and schedule all of the content that we share. My goal is to make our social media platforms a place where it is easy to find information about career development and events we are sponsoring. Much of the information shared on social media are condensed versions of resources we offer in the Career Development Center. If anything strikes your interest, reach out to us. Chances are good that we have more in-depth information!
Most often I can be found in the back offices of the Career Development Center and would love to assist you in any way. The Career Development office is here to make your career aspirations more easily attainable, so we would love to meet you!

Hi! My name is Mandy Hay, and I am an English and Communication Studies double major with a minor in Psychology. I am currently a sophomore at St. Kate’s. My hometown is Hutchinson, Minnesota, a small town in the country. My favorite things to do include writing, singing, reading, working out, and having fun with the people that I love. After college, I see myself working in publishing or media, and I hope to write a book of some kind eventually. I am looking forward to adopting a dog with my boyfriend Collin and traveling all around the world. Typically, you can find me writing articles for The Wheel, singing in the St. Catherine University Women’s Choir, working as an Orientation Leader, and ushering at the O’Shaughnessy theater. I also work as a lifeguard and swim instructor in the summer.
In the Career Development Center, I spend most of my time working at the front desk, checking students in for appointments, and taking calls. However, my most significant strengths are organization and written communication. Because of this, jobs such as creating calendars for the office and answering emails are my forte. I love working as a part of the Career Development team, and I am always willing and eager to answer any questions about our office and what we offer for students, whether I am sitting at the front desk or walking to class.
