Please join us in extending a hearty welcome to some new faces in the Schmidthorst College of Business!

Katrina Heilmeier joins the College of Business as the assistant director of recruitment. Heilmeier previously worked at BGSU as an Honors College Recruiter and a Life Design Coach before moving to the College of Business. Before coming to BGSU, Heilmeier also held the position of associate director of campus relations at Ohio University. She received her undergraduate degree from BGSU in Organizational Communications and her Master of Higher Education degree from Ohio University.

“I am very excited to work on how we can make Schmidthorst College of Business accessible to students from a number of different backgrounds, races, ethnicities, socio-economic backgrounds, genders and more,” said Heilmeier.

Carol Nungester recently came on board as the senior secretary for the Schmidthorst College of Business. Before accepting this position, Nungester served as a secretary at a local high school for ten years. In 2017, she joined BGSU in the Math and Statistics Department and has held positions in the office of the dean of the College of Health and Human Services and in the World Languages and Culture Department. Nungester most looks forward to working with the College of Business staff and students in her new position.

“I enjoy a challenge,” said Nungester.  “Beginning in this position has had its challenges, but I know that I will come to love what I do. I have great support from the dean and associate deans and all the faculty and staff have been very welcoming!”

Mary Wold joined the College of Business as administrative secretary to Dean Ray Braun. Wold's personal philosophy is to enhance diversity, equity and inclusion based on her varied experiences. She has been the chair of a national nonprofit, creator and director of education programs, editor and graphic designer for various publications, manager of an international professional musician, a paralegal, and director of numerous special events. Her work has taken her to New Zealand, South Africa, Canada, Mexico, Hungary, and various states in the USA. So why did Mary choose BGSU after her exciting lifelong endeavors?

“I think universities are the watering holes for those who are creating our future," said Wold. "The SCoB is all about developing the skills of the entrepreneur to serve the public good, and in this job, I get to directly support the initiatives of the dean. How exciting is that?!"
