Joellin Comerford '74

Joellin graduated from Fairfield University in 1974 with a BA in English. Following a short stint in insurance, she returned to Cornell University, graduating with an MBA in 1977. She joined Accenture Ltd (then Arthur Andersen Consulting) in 1977 and worked happily there for 30 years until her retirement in 2007. While there she had many different roles, including running the Capital Markets Business, working in Corporate Development and for her last 5 years, running the Accenture Outsourcing Business.

Joellin traveled continuously for business and lived for periods of time in Tokyo, London and San Francisco (while always wanting to return to New York!). Joellin is single, the oldest of nine children and aunt to 17 wonderful nieces and nephews. Of those in university, none have gone to Fairfield yet, but 13 remain in the wings.

Joellin currently resides in Miami and New York. She still enjoys travel (for leisure), opera and is attempting to improve her Brooklyn accented French and Italian.
