The USM LAC Alumni Lecture Series invites our alumni to return to campus and speak to how their degree program has helped them in their chosen careers. Current members of the USM community as well as the general public are invited to attend these short talks and hear directly from alumni applying their USM education in their workplace or organizations as well as to the wider world.

Andrea Krebs, Tina Berube, and Janet Verrill - Health Affiliates Maine
Andrea Krebs, LCSW, Tina Berube, BSN, and Janet Verrill, LSW, MHRT/C, all graduated with Bachelor’s degrees from USM’s Lewiston-Auburn College. Almost 4 years ago, they were all integral in the development of a new organization, Health Affiliates Maine, a statewide behavioral health agency, in which they currently hold leadership positions. All three were born and raised in Lewiston, and each have a story about how they would not be where they are today without the educational opportunities accessible through USM LAC.
All lectures are free and open to the public.
