Northwood University Florida is pleased to announce that it has appointed Midge Reichert as Director of Career Services.

Reicherts's interest in human relations and business led to a career change from director of a family crisis prevention program in Suffolk County, New York, to human resources recruiter for a leading staffing agency in New York City's financial district.

Reichert earned her Master of Science degree in Human Resources Development at Palm Beach Atlantic University in West Palm Beach, Florida. Upon graduation, she was offered an adjunct position teaching at Northwood University.

She has also been a guest speaker for numerous professional organizations, including the Business and Professional Women's Association on the state and local level, and the Human Resources Association of Palm Beach County.

Reichert has held positions as Human Resources Director in the fields of marine technology, aviation, and health care where she developed and implemented HR policies and processes to meet compliance standards in alignment with organizational objectives. She is an active member of Jupiter-Tequesta Junior Women's Club, on the Board of Directors of the South Florida Chapter of the American Society of Training and Development's Palm Beach County GIG, serving as VP of Community Outreach, and Director of Membership.
