Get to know Cynthia Nethercut
January 28, 2022
Q. What is your favorite thing you are working on right now?
A. With others, I am working on the implementation of a process to efficiently handle sales to external customers throughout the University. I hope the kinks are worked out before I retire!
Q. What do you like best about working at Yale?
A. Over my 19-year career at Yale, I would have named different aspects of Yale that I liked best. As I near retirement, I’d say the thing I currently appreciate most is the phased retirement plan. I like the opportunity to transition my work to others and to ease into retirement.
Q. What is one word that describes you best?
A. I think that the first thing most people would say is “organized.” I do like identifying a problem and trying to bring order to murky or unclear situations.
Q. What is one fun fact about you?
A. Before coming to Yale, I worked for 25 years in mass transit (New York City Transportation Authority, New Jersey Transit, and the Chicago Regional Transportation Authority). I’m still a die-hard mass transit fan and rider. We chose our house so I could commute to Yale on the Shoreline East train.
