Our Office

Dr. Lisa Kaul

she/her/hers  |  Director  |  likaul@vassar.edu
I’m one half Kashmiri, one quarter Maharashtrian, one-eighth Chinese, one-eighth Portuguese and immigrated to America in 2004. I grew up in India, earned my B.A. in Sociology from the University of Delhi, and my M.Phil. and D.Phil. in Social and Cultural Anthropology from Oxford. I love walking in high mountains, and my son is trying to get me to learn to ski.

Amanda Goodman

she/her/hers  |  Administrative Assistant  |  agoodman@vassar.edu
“One of these mornings…you’re goin’ to rise up singing…then you’ll spread your wings…and you’ll take the sky…”  These lyrics from Billie Holiday’s Summertime have often inspired me to go after what I want. I’m a singer/songwriter who has performed throughout the Hudson Valley and at BB King’s in New York City. I earned my Bachelor’s at Marist College and was awarded the Baccalaureate Award for the Political Science department. I previously worked for a fashion buyer and a bank. In addition to being a music lover, I love baking, fashion, penguins and black cats. I currently live in Wappingers Falls with my husband.

Shelby Seipp

she/her/hers | Administrative Assistant | sseipp@vassar.edu
I’m a writer, or so I like to think I am. I earned my BA in English at SUNY New Paltz and then went on to earn my MS in Publishing at Pace University. Before coming to Vassar, I worked behind the scenes on the publishing side of DC Comics in Burbank, California. If I’m not writing, reading or working, I can usually be found recording with my friend for our true-crime podcast, Dead Drunk. In whatever time I have left to spare, I volunteer at the Animal Rescue Foundation (ARF) in Beacon, where I was lucky enough to meet and rescue my wonderful pup, Genny.  

PLEASE NOTE THAT STEPHANIE FISHER-MEYER IS NO LONGER WORKING AT THE OFFICE.
