Director of Admissions Gayle Barrett joined the MxCC community in May 2014. She is excited to be back on a college campus and working with students on a daily basis. She believes that each member of the campus community has a role to play in the success of a student and is proud to help prospective students on the first step of their educational journey.
Before arriving at MxCC, Gayle served as the Nursing Admissions Specialist for the CT Community College Nursing Program (CT-CCNP) for six years. Prior to working with the CT-CCNP, Gayle was the Director of Continuing Education at St. Vincent’s College and the Associate Director of Admissions at Post University.
Gayle earned a master’s of science degree in Counselor Education from Central CT State University, and a bachelor’s of arts degree in Psychology from Stonehill College.
When not on campus, Gayle can often be found on stage performing in local community theater productions. She is an active volunteer with various community theatre organizations throughout the state, and is a member of the Hartford Stage Volunteer Advisory Board. She also enjoys traveling, designing jewelry and is an avid reader. Some of her favorite authors are Agatha Christie and Jane Mansell.
