OAK RIDGE CHAMBER OF COMMERCE: Jeannette Bouchard named group manager of Workforce Development programs

Oak Ridge Chamber of Commerce issued the following announcement on Jan. 29.

Jeannette Bouchard has been promoted to group manager of internship and fellowship programs that ORISE manages to support federal workforce development.

In her new role, Bouchard will oversee all aspects of 10 ORISE internship and fellowship programs, to include leadership of 24 program staff. She will be responsible for approximately 2,600 participants who range in experience from college faculty and students to pre-college participants during their time in ORISE research participation programs. Research participants will be placed in programs with the Environmental Protection Agency, the Food and Drug Administration, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the U.S. Department of Agriculture and other federal agencies with research facilities across the country.

“Promoting Jeannette to group manager was a natural transition for someone who has almost 25 years of experience managing research experience programs and their participants,” said ORISE Director Jim Vosburg. “We are fortunate to have Jeannette represent top research programs while ensuring ORISE research experiences continue to support the nation’s mission to expand STEM workforce development.”

After joining ORISE in 2004, Bouchard served as section manager for ORISE-administered programs with the CDC for more than 15 years. In previous roles, she managed operations for the annual competition of the National Science Foundation’s Graduate Research Fellowship Program for ORAU, and graduate fellowship programs at the Graduate School of the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.

Bouchard holds a Master of Arts in English from Northeastern University in Boston, MA and a Bachelor of Arts in English and French from Hofstra University in Hempstead, NY. She has served as chair of ORAU’s Diversity/Equal Employment Opportunity Council, as well as on the Commission for Women at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville.
