Michelle Lunde ’18
Senior Major: Biochemistry Lifestyle: Commuter Student Home: Barre, Vt.
A trained pastry chef, Michelle Lunde ran her own a successful bakery before arriving at Norwich to study biochemistry. Lunde plans a new career in food science following graduation and has interned with Keurig, where she designed her own hot chocolate flavor working in its R&D department. Here, she shares her typical Monday routine at Norwich. The day begins and ends much the same—studying. Between classes, she stops into the research lab of faculty mentor Prof. Karen Hinkle to keep tabs on a line of human embryonic kidney cells. While her husband Ken travels on business, her rescue dogs Baron and Blair keep Lunde smiling.
