What do you love most about working in higher education and why?

I love knowing that the work I am doing makes an immediate impact on a student’s life. Higher education marketing encourages students to take the next step toward defining their futures.

How did you choose your profession and why?

I chose marketing because of my experience working on social media for Adelphi University’s Alumni Relations team. I was inspired by the power I had to reconnect alumni with their alma mater and seeing the immediate results of that connection through post engagement.

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given and why?

To never stop learning. There is always something to be learned from every situation, and even if you think you have all the answers, you can always take one more step.

What is something most people don’t know about you?

That I’m a gamer! I’m a long-time fan of “Overwatch” and “Apex Legends” on Xbox One.
