Name: Corrie Ainsworth
Occupation: Office manager/project coordinator in the college’s Office of Communications & Marketing.

What brought me to Beloit: I had been looking for a career in which I could utilize my degree in communications management, and I happened to come across this open position. The timing was perfect, the opportunity was exactly what I had been looking for, so I went for it and here I am. I'm grateful to be here, and I'm surrounded by wonderful people all day. I look forward to meeting more Beloiters!
You may have seen me: Wandering aimlessly around campus asking how to get to certain buildings.
What are you working on? At home, I'm perfecting my bacon bourbon cheesecake tartlets and my pineapple upside down cheesecake.
What’s on your desert island jukebox? Royal Bliss, Blue October, best of the’80s.
Any advice? Never let anyone pierce your veil of confidence.
What do you do in your free time? I enjoy baking and cooking, especially for my family and friends. Reading a good book to wind down. When the weather is nice we enjoy bike rides, taking our black lab, Norah, for a walk, or lounging in our pool at home.
Who are your heroes? My parents.
What’s your favorite hidden gem here in the area? Not too familiar with places in Beloit, but one in Rockford is Toad Hall.
