Adjunct Assistant Professor, Philosophy
Mary Troxell has taught in the PULSE program for seven years and also teaches a course on Kant’s epistemology. As a philosophy major who never considered how her passion might relate to her vocation, she pursued a career in finance after graduating from college. The misery she experienced working at a job she hated, in contrast with the joy she experiences now that she works in a field she loves, fuels her passion for helping students discern what they love and who they want to be.
She serves on student retreats through such programs as Intersections, Campus Ministries, and First Year Experience in order to help students think through the big questions. When not on campus, she enjoys playing the violin (quite badly) and Scrabble (rather well).
