Cecily Stewart Hawksworth began as the department's Academic Coordinator on June 27, 2016.
She comes to us from the Graduate School of Arts & Sciences at Washington University, where she worked for six years in various administrative roles. Cecily is a WashU alumna, as well as a "faculty brat" and has worked at the University since 2007, so you might say she is pretty familiar with it! Her parents are retired Department of Music faculty, who are both fluent in German, and she has at least two other family members who are fluent. Sadly, Cecily isn't fluent, but she feels like she has the perfect job in which to work on that.
For information about what she does for the Department, see her profile here.
