Associate Director, Consulting and Programming

Lucy Moran, MS.Ed., GCDF

Lucy Moran serves as Associate Director, Consulting and Programming for the Career Connections Center at Texas Woman’s University. Lucy leads the consultant team with over eight years in career services in higher education. She holds a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and a Master of Science in Education with a focus on student affairs, both from Indiana University. She has worked in career services at Indiana University, Queens College in Charlotte, NC and as Assistant Director of Career Services at Berry College in Mt. Berry, GA. After taking some time to be home with her children, Lucy returned to work at Frisco ISD. As her daughter was exploring colleges, Lucy felt the pull to return to higher education and to career services and found a perfect fit at TWU. For the past year, she served as Career Consultant for our Dallas campus and is now excited to lead our team of consultants to build a career culture across all TWU campuses.

Lucy and her husband, Wes, live with her son, Joshua, in Frisco where she also serves as a board member/band mom for Liberty High School Marching Band. Lucy’s daughter, Katie, is pursuing a BFA in acting at St. Edward’s University in Austin. The family enjoys hiking and being outdoors when it’s not excruciatingly hot (and it is Texas so it’s hot all the time!); “The Office” and true crime shows are a fun, less physically taxing alternative. Lucy is also an avid reader, and expert napper and collector of craft supplies.

Lucy’s Top 5 StrengthsFinder results are: Empathy, Relator, Connectedness, Input and Intellection. She loves to build relationships with students, faculty and staff and to learn everyone’s unique story.

Lucy is currently fascinated with the works of Brene Brown. “Let go of who you think you’re supposed to be; embrace who you are.” This quote underscores the importance of authenticity in our lives. To truly be happy, we must learn to love ourselves as we are.
