What are you doing now ?
I am an Associate Project Manager at Partners + Napier here in Rochester
In what ways did your time at Naz prepare you for your life’s work?
My internships were phenomenal! With help from the Internship Office and Career Services, I found two unique internships that prepared me for my career. My first internship at the Rochester Broadway Theatre League helped me discover and hone my strongest skills. My second internship, with the Marketing Department at Naz, shaped my career goals and encouraged me to look at the world of marketing in a new light. The experiences I had at both internships prepared me for my current full-time job.
How did your experiences at Naz spark your passion? My time as an orientation leader and RA helped me discover that I loved working with people; helping others find success is an irreplaceable and priceless feeling. I knew that I needed to find a career in which I could help others and work in a field that excited me.
What is your fondest memory of your time at Naz?
My entire undergraduate career is a fond memory. The relationships I gained, the lessons I learned, and the people I met shaped my personality. Nazareth created the building blocks for a successful future and I am thrilled to continue my education by pursuing my master’s in Marketing here at Naz.
What’s one thing about life after Nazareth that turned out differently than you expected?
I am more prepared for life after college than I could have ever imagined. I feel confident that I can tackle whatever challenge comes my way and I am ready for the next adventure!
What’s some advice you have for incoming freshman and current students about making the most of this time in their life?
HAVE FUN. Seriously! Don’t stress too much about your future; live in the moment and enjoy every step of the journey. A positive attitude will provide you with incredible opportunities during your collegiate career and long after.
