One Penn alumna connects businesses to the power of recycling

“I get to do work that makes the world a better place just by working at TerraCycle,” shares Maame Mensah (Master of Environmental Studies ’11), the US Account Director of Brand Partnerships at TerraCycle. Maame’s organization is the world leader in the collection and recycling of waste that is generally considered non-recyclable.

“I was a unique case because I joined Penn’s Master of Medical Physics (MMP) program when I already had a master’s in physics,” shares Malorie Stowe (MMP ’14), “I didn’t have to retake foundational courses, so it opened my schedule. Knowing I wanted to be a clinical physicist, I spent that extra time in a clinical practicum through Penn’s partnership with Einstein Medical Center.

I was fascinated with the idea of creating educationally-based social media content that could impart wisdom to the millions of young eyes these brands reach. That inspired me to take the next step and start looking into master’s programs.”

“I got my dream job because of the Master of Environmental Studies (MES) program,” beams Lauren McGrath (MES ’16), a freshwater ecologist at the Willistown Conservation Trust in Newtown Square, PA. “I thought it would happen in 20 years, and it happened right after I got my degree, because of the connections I made at Penn.”
