Dunscombe graduated from Saint Joseph's College with a Bachelor of Arts in English-Creative Writing. She earned her Master of Arts in Writing from DePaul University in Chicago, Ill. in 2005.
Dunscombe is the Content Manager for Orbis Education in Indianapolis, Ind. Orbis is a full service educational facility whose goal is to provide mentors to youth struggling in their studies. Prior to joining Orbis, Dunscombe was the Director of Publications and Media Relations at SJC from 2002 to 2005, adjunct faculty member in the English Department at SJC for a semester in 2007, and Director of Corporate Affairs at AIT Laboratories from 2005-2012.

She also served as a literacy mentor for McClelland Elementary School in Wayne Township in Indianapolis as part of Helping One Student to Succeed (HOSTS). HOSTS provides one-on-one tutoring for students needing to improve reading comprehension and vocabulary skills.
As a member of the Alumni Association, Dunscombe hopes to "pave the way for a greater Saint Joseph's College."
"Because of my relationship with SJC, I have embarked on exciting paths, found the courage to ask hard questions about my spiritual life, and become acquainted with some of the most thoughtful and caring people I have ever met," said Dunscombe. "Therefore, I believe in the power of connecting alumni to current and prospective students, parents, and other alumni."
Dunscombe resides with her husband, Luke, and their three children in Plainfield, Ind.
