Name: Dess Wilson
Title: Assistant Director of Admissions
Alma Mater/Degree: Hampshire College / B.A. in Black Studies, Psychology, and Theatre

Why I love working at Hampshire: Hampshire is a big part of what home means to me in western Massachusetts, especially having come from Brooklyn, New York. I enjoy being part of a community as interesting and surprising as Hampshire is!

Random fact about me: My family immigrated to the U.S. from Guyana, which makes me a first-generation American! Also, I love cinnamon apple pie.

If I could teach a class, it would be called: Let's Cry About It: Trauma-Informed Care Through Community Healing Within Performance.
