DIRECTOR OF COMMUNICATION AND SOCIAL MEDIA

"I received so much more above and beyond an education from my time at the University of Hartford that I feel very strongly to give back whenever I can. The summer before my senior year, I got the opportunity to intern at CNN in New York City through an alumnus that I had never met. Right before graduation, I was lucky enough to land an interview at The Hartford, once again through an alumna that I had no connection with previously. These two interactions with fellow alumni led me on the road to get a job right out of college, and the experiences I had at UHart have helped me as I've continued my career. I love nothing more than coming back to campus and talking to current or prospective students and sharing my story and how UHart has been such a big part in my life."
