Libby Westley
Faculty Advisor

Libby Westley, Director of Career Planning, is CCM’s advisor and a member of Immaculate Conception Parish in Hampton, Virginia.  Listening and talking to people as they discern their roles and the work to which they are called, she considers her work with college students and in higher education as ministry.  Another aspect of her ministry is helping people make the connections necessary to pursue their callings.  Her introduction to this ministry came while a teenager serving as an aide in the Career Center of her high school.  Later as a student at James Madison University, Libby was actively involved in many aspects of student affairs and with Catholic Campus Ministry.  She is an alumna of Encounter with Christ #108 and highly recommends the diocesan sponsored retreat to CCMers. After earning her Master’s degree in College Student Personnel, Libby completed a year of volunteer work as a campus minister with the Claretians, an order of priests, brothers and lay people. Since then, Libby has worked in several colleges and universities in a variety of assignments including residence life, leadership development, community service, campus ministry, and career development.  Libby came to CNU in June 2010 after spending ten years at Davidson College in North Carolina.  In her spare time, Libby enjoys running, Pilates, cooking, and entertaining.
