  • BA in Global Studies, Providence College

What are the specifics of your educational/career background?

I received my Bachelor of Arts in Global Studies from Providence College, where I also studied Spanish and Film. Prior to Northeastern, I worked at two nonprofits in Rhode Island. I was the Community Outreach Coordinator at Bike Newport, and I served as an Americorps VISTA at Social Enterprise Greenhouse.

What are the key aspects of your role at Northeastern? What do you enjoy most about what you do?

In my current role, I assist with preparation and support for students both during the job search and while on co-op, job development research, event coordination and data management. I love working with students and helping them determine which co-op and path is right for them.

What’s the most compelling thing to you about the work that goes on at CCIS?

I have always been a proponent of hands-on and experiential learning, so the co-op program is incredibly compelling to me. Especially given the global reach of CCIS, students have the opportunity to gain really valuable experience that will help them throughout their life.
