Lindsay Pecosh joins WVU from her home state of Pennsylvania, where she worked for colleges and universities for more than a decade, specializing in admissions and recruitment.
“I already feel such a connection to our students and faculty and a great sense of pride in what the blue and gold represent not just in West Virginia, but around the world,” she said.
Before becoming a Mountaineer, she worked as the associate director of graduate admissions and global online programs at California University of Pennsylvania. While leaving her alma mater was bittersweet, Pecosh is excited to be a part of the WVU family as the assistant director of recruitment for the School of Medicine.
“Everyone is so friendly and helpful. From the professors to the students – every person has an excitement and passion for what they are doing at the School of Medicine, and for WVU as a whole.”
Pecosh plans to pursue a doctoral degree in higher education administration. She has an undergraduate degree in business administration/management and a master’s degree in law, public policy and homeland security. She also has a post-master’s certificate in Criminal Behavior Analysis from California University of Pennsylvania.
Outside of work, she enjoys spending time with family and friends, traveling, good food, going to Steelers football games and keeping up with her favorite college sports teams.
