What are the key aspects of your role at Northeastern? What do you enjoy most/find most interesting about what you do?
Office Administration and Event Planning. I enjoy both aspects of my job equally learning about career advancement, job development, placements and event planning has been a wonderful experience. What I find most interesting is that in this position its a never ending learning experience. This is the perfect position to learn the ins and out of Northeastern University.
What’s the most compelling thing to you about the research/work that goes on at the College?
The life changing inventions that can save people lives. For instance the, the simple device to prevent the IV lines from tangling that Karen Giuliano, an associate professor in Northeastern’s school of nursing designed.
What led you to work in your field and/or study at your college? Any reason in particular why you opted for those particular schools/careers (family history, a program you were excited about, a city you were dying to live in)?
Growing up in the inner city and seeing how people treat the less fortunate is what led me to pursue a career in Human Services. I understand the importance of meeting people where they are in life and assisting them to be where they want to be instead of judging them.
