A Day In the Life

Now in her 26th year at Williston, Associate Director of Athletics Melissa Brousseau-—aka Ms. B—is always on the go as a class dean, advisor, and expert on all things athletic. Knowing this, we asked her to take us through an average day in her life—and learned there’s nothing average about it.

8:00 AM My dogs, Ripley and Erving, love their campus walks in the mornings. A highlight of any walk is running into students and faculty friends—especially fellow dog-lover Allison Marsland.

10:00 AM The Winter Athletic Awards assembly was a great recap of a memorable season—especially after the historic championships won by the Boys Varsity Swimming and Diving and Girls Varsity Hockey teams.

1:00 pM One “home” for me on campus is the training room. Preparing athletes for practice or competition is a standard part of my days. Trust me, I’ve taped more than a few ankles in my job.

3:00 pM Look sharp, play sharp! Unboxing and sorting new uniforms is part of an AD’s job. I think the new Varsity Girls Lacrosse uniforms look great this year.

4:30 pM Being on the sidelines at Sawyer Field in the spring requires being ready for rain, sleet, and snow. Athletes and ADs have
to be tough in New England!

6:30 pM It’s Friday night, and time for a Residential Life Dinner. I love the feeling of family as we laugh and talk about life. It’s the best way to end the week, and you can’t beat the bread rolls!
