What is the Wellness Initiatives Network? 

The Wellness Initiatives Network, or WIN or The Network, is a collaborative group comprised of staff, faculty, and students all committed to providing opportunities and services for the Merrimack community to prioritize their health, wellness, and safety.

Alyssa Adie, Office of Student Involvement

Kerry Cameron, Campus Dietitian for Dining Services 

Denise Dwyer, Assistant Director for Hamel Health & Counseling

Katie Fell, O’Brien Center for Career Development

Matt Gordon, Director of Campus Fitness and Recreation

Jim Howland, Mental Health Clinician in Hamel Health & Counseling

Molly Jodka, Graduate Fellow for the Honors Program
Why is student wellness important to the Honors Program?
Wellness is imperative for the Honors Program because many of the Honors students do not have the time needed to devote to themselves, as they are typically very committed and over-engaged students. Serving on the Wellness Initiatives Network allows Honors and Wellness to collaborate on successful study skills and coping with stress, perfectionism, and other detrimental habits that the students may face.

Emily Long, Assistant Director in the Office of Residence Life

Gianna Mazzolla, Graduate Fellow for the Office of Community Standards

Danny Rone, Resident Director in the Office of Residence Life

Jeff Wallace, Campus Minister in the Office of Campus Ministry
