Tamesha L. Keel has been involved in legal career counseling for over eight years. As the Assistant Dean for Career Services at Penn State University-Dickinson Law
, she co-manages all aspects of the career services office to meet the professional development needs of law students and alumni. Ms. Keel is a member of the Florida and New York State Bar Associations. In addition to providing leadership for the career services office, Tamesha leads a team of professionals and works collaboratively with faculty, law school, and university administration.
Ms. Keel has previously held many legal positions including working as an associate and chief judicial law clerk. After practicing law for several years, Ms. Keel transitioned into a career as a law school administrator. Although this career move was unplanned, it resulted from relationships cultivated as an attorney in the U.S. Department of Justice's Attorney General Honors Program. In this role, she assisted with the program's recruitment efforts that allowed her to work with local law school career services offices. After her judicial clerkship ended, an immediate opportunity to work in career services
arose. It was a natural transition for her because she always assisted others with their professional development.
Tamesha's most memorable school experiences are receiving her undergraduate and law school diplomas, along with the joy of having her parents attend both ceremonies. Those two moments have solidified the notion that anything is possible through hard work.
