I came into college knowing I wanted to go into Human Resources (HR) so I had internships in Massachusetts at Partner's HealthCare, where I was a general HR intern and at Fletcher Allen Health Care in Burlington, which was more recruiting-focused.
At Davis, I worked with other St. Mike's alumni who understand the skills I gained at the college. The owner's son, Pat Davis '08, was one of the people who told me about how great the company is.
I appreciate the opportunities I have had because of Saint Michael's: With the Student Association, I started as a senator and ended as senior class president. That gave me experience that I still apply at Davis today. Being a tour guide allowed me to meet and network with potential and prospective students and their families too. And the Career Development office provided specific job opportunities.
I didn't want to just be a business person, which is why I minored in sociology, which opened my mind and made me a more educated, generous, well-rounded person.
I took an experience-based management course junior year that was extremely hands-on. We all had to rely on each other to be sure we learned the material, and the students graded each other. It was one of the most influential classes I took in terms of preparing me for the real world.
