Career Development

 

As Associate Director for Career Development, I collaborate with a team providing non-stem career advising. I specialize in business, financial services and logistics, and provide one-on-one tailored advising to students interested in careers in these areas. Strengths/Expertise:
* Social Media (LinkedIn) & Blogging
* Personal Branding Understanding & Implementation
* Faculty, Employer & Alumni Relationship Development
* Workshop, Training & Program Execution

In my 10+ years of professional experience I have been lucky enough to work in human resources, finance, operations, and sales. In 2013 I moved from the corporate landscape to higher education. I enjoy working in an office that is fun, innovative, and forward thinking, while also embracing an overarching commitment to the students we serve.

My undergraduate degree is in Business Administration, Marketing from Elizabethtown College in Elizabethtown, Pennsylvania. During my time as an undergraduate I worked at a lodge in Northern Minnesota, studied abroad in Greece, and interned as a Marketing Assistant at a bank. Several years later, in August 2014, I completed my Master of Arts in Counselor Education at The College of New Jersey becoming a National Certified Counselor (NCC).

Drawing from experience I believe every step is leading you, in some way, in the right direction. The most crucial part is to just take a step, any step (don't overthink it), and move forward. No one ever got anywhere by standing still.
