Colleen Karpinsky, of the class of 2001, has been named to The Union Leader's list of "40 Under 40" influential young professionals. Every year, New Hampshire's largest daily newspaper recognizes a group of young citizens for their talent and service to the state.
Karpinsky is vice president of talent and legal at Dyn in Manchester, N.H., where she uses her human resources and legal background to attract talent and manage customer relationships. Before joining Dyn, she worked as a corporate transactional and employment law attorney at New Hampshire's largest law firm, McLane, Graf, Raulerson & Middleton.
She is also very active in her community and is secretary of the Manchester Young Professionals Network. She has been a community investment volunteer for the Heritage United Way and volunteered as a mentor for Team in Training, which raises funds for leukemia and lymphoma research. She also has served on committees for the New Hampshire Bar Association and the New Hampshire Workplace Initiative Against Domestic Violence.
Karpinsky graduated with a degree in business and a certificate in international relations and was a noted debater as an undergraduate. During her senior year on the college's debate team, she earned a first place finish at the National Forensic Association's championship tournament. She regularly returns to Saint Anselm to help the debate team prepare for competition.
Karpinsky earned her law degree at the Pennsylvania State University's Dickinson School of Law, where she was a member of the Woolsack Honor Society.
