Director, Office of Marketing and Communications
Joining Cornell CALS in 2016, Stockdale designs and implements communication strategies that serve CALS’ many stakeholders. Proud to serve the college’s research, education and outreach efforts, she also strives to bring greater visibility and cohesion to the powerful CALS brand through high-visibility projects and storytelling. Overseeing the Office of Marketing and Communications’ editorial team, she also works to align college publications with broader college and university priorities.
In prior Cornell roles, she served as associate director of marketing and communications at the School of Hotel Administration and the SC Johnson College of Business, leading internal communication strategy and brand implementation. Before joining the Big Red team, Stockdale managed recruitment strategy and event marketing at the Ithaca College School of Music.
A Southern Tier native and long-time California resident, she graduated with a bachelor’s in journalism from California State University Long Beach. Post-graduation, Stockdale founded a Long Beach-based creative agency and served as an environmental and food beat reporter for several Southern California publications, including the Los Angeles Times.
In her spare time, she loves getting snuggles from her daughter, drinking far too much coffee, going on family runs through the Cornell Arboretum and playing lots of music with her husband and friends.
