Introducing Elizabeth Celtrick, the new Assistant Director of the Rockefeller Center

In her new position as the Assistant Director for Co-Curricular Program at the Rockefeller Center, Elizabeth will support the Center’s mission of enhancing the academic experience of students and their knowledge of the broader community through the planning and programming of leadership and civic skills training, internship opportunities locally and abroad, and student-led discussion groups and workshops. 

“I take real pride in joining this fantastic team of faculty and staff," Elizabeth said. "The programs and opportunities for students at the Center are simply outstanding.” 

Prior to joining the Rockefeller Center, Elizabeth enjoyed a career as a U.S. Department of Defense civilian employee. She most recently worked at the Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory (CRREL), in Hanover, New Hampshire. While there Elizabeth worked in the Special Projects Office as an Army Corps of Engineers project liaison between the Government and private industry stakeholders for the Desert Owl Program, a highly successful R&D prototype system. Additionally, she was the administrative lead for several business process improvement initiatives piloted at the Laboratory. Prior to that, Elizabeth worked at the U.S. European Command in Stuttgart, Germany as the Command Staff Military-to-Military Program Administrator. There she facilitated monthly conferences between U.S. Senior Legal Advisors and their NATO counterparts. She was also responsible for modernizing the repository of U.S.-European Security and Status of Forces Agreements, bringing over 4,000 documents on-line for research and reference purposes. In 2010, Elizabeth was awarded the Joint Civilian Service Achievement Award, which recognizes non-military personnel for outstanding achievement in service to the Department of Defense. 

Elizabeth earned a B.A in History from Southern Adventist University in 1994 and a M.A. in International Studies from the University of Wyoming in 1997. She and her husband chose to relocate to the Upper Valley after living overseas for more than ten years. Among some of her favorite activities are hiking, riding horses, dog training, reading, and travel.
