Today, we are getting to know Loni Smith:
What is your role at Georgetown? How long have you been working here?
I am senior assistant dean of executive degree programs. I have been with Georgetown for more than six years.
What do you enjoy most about working in executive education?
I love being able to interact with everyone in the Georgetown McDonough community. Whether the interaction is with a student, faculty member, a facilities worker, a foreign dignitary, or a member of Congress, I am fortunate to be able to interface with a myriad of Georgetown stakeholders every day.
You recently graduated from our Global Executive MBA (GEMBA) program – congratulations! What was the experience like for you?
I hate to sound cliché, but the program was quite transformative! It was the first time I got to see how the “other side” lives. I believe that I am now more aware of how globally connected Georgetown has become.
What book are you currently reading?
I’m reading The Confidence Code by Claire Shipman and Katty Kay.
