Joe Kittelberger

Josef Kittelberger is a '20 Chemistry graduate of Stevenson. He returned to SU this past May for graduation and everyone loved seeing him and hearing about his very exciting job: Joe is utilizing his chemistry degree in the candy industry! After graduation, Joe obtained a position at Hybrid Confections, the sister company of Enstrom Candies, a four-generation family-owned candy company in Grand Junction, Colorado, known for its delicious toffees and confections. Joe is involved in their new project: gummy manufacture, including cannabidiol (CBD) gummies. To quote Joe, “Working in the candy business is a sweet gig!”

Karyn Yates

Biochemistry alum Karyn Yates (BS'19) has reached an important goal in her dream of becoming a physician's assistant. Karyn has been accepted into the Post-Baccalaureate Pre-Health/Physician's Assistant Program at Temple University.  She has worked hard to prove herself, by accumulating volunteer hours, working as a medical assistant, studying and retaking the GRE and completing additional coursework. We are excited for Karyn's next steps as she moves to Philadelphia later this summer to start her coursework. She has never given up on her dream, and continues to strive for her goals. Congratulations Karyn!

Corinna Carter, (Chemistry BS'17/MFS'18) is being featured on our blog as an alum who now teaches at Stevenson, and we are glad she does!  Her story: "Since graduating I worked for a clinical toxicology facility that performed LC/MS testing for drug rehabilitation centers. When there I was in charge of accessioning samples, batch preparation, releasing data reports, and chemical inventory (I'm not there anymore). While working full-time at the lab, I started teaching General Chemistry labs as an adjunct and loved every minute! I now teach CHEM 115/116 lecture, lab, and an online Food Chemistry class through SUO. What I like best about teaching at Stevenson is the relationship I'm able to build with my students. It's absolutely amazing to see how an originally timid freshman class opens up and becomes more confident throughout a semester. Being a stepping-stone in their journey is incredibly rewarding!"
