Stories of CBS alumni making an impact in their careers. 

Meet Mindi DePaola | CBS Class of 2015

Mindi DePaola entered CBS like many other students – with a love for science, a curiosity about the world around her, and a motivation to leave an impact. Now she is working for an organization with a mission she is passionate about, in a job that gives her flexibility outside of work to pursue her personal interests! We recently caught up with Mindi to see where her CBS degree has led her.


What is she up to now?
