Chatfield College Alumna Joins Staff

Emilia Knisley, a 2013 graduate of Chatfield College, has joined the staff as the Manager of Library Services. The position entails assisting students with resources, overseeing the Library & Learning Centers at both campuses, and coordinating support services such as tutoring and mentoring.

As a College Credit Plus (CCP) student from Lynchburg Clay High School, Emilia graduated from both high school and college weeks apart in 2013. Following her time at Chatfield, she went on to earn her bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice with a minor in Political Science from Wilmington College in 2017.  Emilia is currently pursuing a master’s degree in Public Administration with an emphasis in Non-Profit Management at Ohio University and will graduate in August.

Emilia said, “I love working in the library— especially being able to connect people with the information and resources available to them. I am excited to get back into an academic library like Chatfield’s. It will be interesting to be on the other side of the circulation desk!”

She brings a wealth and breadth of library experience and community engagement through her work in the Blanchester Public Library, the Watson Library at Wilmington College, as an intern with the Clinton County Health District, and as a member of community theater in Wilmington.

“Emilia’s experience in supporting the academic and nonacademic community in developing digital literacy and writing skills will aid continuing and future Chatfield students as we move toward an increasingly integrated model of student support,” said Dean Dr. Peter Hanson.

Emilia resides in Lynchburg with her pets and enjoys participating in 5Ks and community theater.
