Putting Ideas into Action

“Jean Howard is both an idea person extraordinaire and a real doer. Her energy and enthusiasm  for her work are contagious. A great team player, Jean is results oriented and a great contributor  to any organization she joins. She can manage up, she can manage down–and she can pull a  flagging organization of peers along as well as anyone I have ever had the pleasure to work with.”
~David Gautschi

Changemaster and Consummate Networker

“Jean has a unique ability to initiate action while the rest of us are still talking! She is a catalyst  for growth and change, and a consummate networker and connector. She worked tirelessly to  build connections between the Lally School and the local business community through the  Severino Interest Group. These connections benefited not only our students (with mentoring and  jobs), but also local businesses (with new networks, talent and thought leadership), while raising  the profile of our school. Jean is an energetic and positive supporter and mentor of emerging  entrepreneurs of all ages, but especially undergraduate and graduate students. She is a highly capable problem solver, and always brings positive ideas to the table.”
