Doreen Hettich-AtkinsDoreen Hettich-Atkins
Coordinator of Special Services & Programs - Student Affairs & Campus Life


Doreen joined the college in 2004 and has worked in the Division of Student Affairs & Campus Life since starting at Ithaca College. She is no stranger to the area having grown up in Towanda PA, only a short drive south of Ithaca. However, she spent 25 years away in Philadelphia before she came back to the southern tier of New York State. 

Doreen gets to practice one of her favorite hobbies right here on campus through one of its Affinity Groups; The Toastmasters Club. Doreen has a supportive group to help her develop her professional speaking abilities, which is helping her achieve her ultimate goal of becoming a professional workshop facilitator and presenter.

Outside campus you’ll likely see Doreen with her two children hanging out at Stewart Park or eating at Moe’s. When she can find a babysitter, you’ll probably find her at Taste of Thai Express.
