Gabrielle (Popowitz) VanAlstine
Grad of 2003
My title is currently Human Resources and Recruiting Strategies
Rep, epVerify Consultant.
I work with Employment Plus, the 11th fastest growing privately owned
staffing firm in the nation. I am involved with internal recruiting,
strategic HR, writing policies and implementing procedures, as well as
spearheading epVerify, a division of Employment Plus that offers
screenings, testing, and assessments.
I believe that being an English major at SVC polished my communication
skills (obviously), creativity, and resourcefulness...all traits that
helped me obtain a successful career that I love.
Memories/Stories-- The faculty of the English Dept at SVC is second to
none. Father Wulfstan was the celebrant at my wedding, and awed the
intellectuals of my bridal party with his Shakespearean and Tolkien
knowledge. My favorite memories are: Sir Richard of Wissolik finding
the Holy Grail (a coffee cup) in Fr. Wulfstan's Arthurian Literature
course, as well as the many pop culture conversations in Intermediate
Writing, thanks to my former advisor, Dr. Snyder (as well as Beyonce).
I commend the students who are putting this together! A fantastic idea!
