What do you do for a living?

I am currently the Development Associate for The Samfund, a nonprofit organization based in Boston that provides support to young adults who are struggling financially because of cancer. I am responsible for all fundraising related activities.

How did your experience at Saint Michael's help prepare you for your career?

St. Mike's really let me explore all of my academic interests. It was my Peace and Justice Freshmen seminar (which I was randomly placed into) that led me to take on a Peace and Justice minor and eventually serve as an AmeriCorps VISTA and pursue a career in the nonprofit sector. Three years later, I couldn't imagine having gone anywhere else.

What is your favorite memory from your time at St. Mike's?

My favorite part of my St. Mike's experience was being surrounded by friends who became family for four years. Also being a member of the women's rugby team.
