Maggy Leitch

Hometown:

I am a townie… Lafayette born and raised.

Education:

  • B.S. in Hospitality Management, Purdue University

Work Experience:

I have spent the last several years working in Property Management as a General Manager of high-end luxury apartment buildings in the Midwest. I have used my HTM degree in managing people and businesses and worked hard to be successful in the business world. I have managed properties with monthly incomes over a million dollars and led teams of over 100 people. I have returned to Purdue to use my knowledge of the hospitality field to help students find their paths in what HTM will mean to them.

About two years ago my husband and I were blessed with the surprise of identical twin boys and since their arrival we have wanted to move closer to my hometown of Lafayette. When the academic advisor position became available it felt like the perfect way to pay forward the amazing education I had gotten from the university and to work with students. I am very much looking forward to my new career at Purdue!

Advice for Boilermakers:

Focus on your academics and be sure to get involved in areas that inspire you. From study abroad to student organizations there is something out there for everyone.

Fun Facts:
