How did you find your first post-Wagner job?

I found my first post-Wagner job (which is my current job) via a fellowship I had done the summer before my final year at Wagner. I learned about the fellowship from a fellow Wagner student. I loved my experience with Year Up during the 10-week summer fellowship and was thrilled to be invited back two months later to serve as the Interim Director of Admissions and Recruitment for our local office. At the close of my interim role, this position became available.

Describe your current job.

I provide strategic, management and consultative support to Year Up's admissions teams across our 15+ sites and also help set the vision and direction for admissions organizationally. I'm based in our New York National offices and often travel to our sites as well.

What are the advantages of the Wagner alumni network?

The breadth of Wagner's alumni network is incredible; there's fantastic array of alumni across numerous interest areas and disciplines. Additionally, Wagner alumni are always generous with their time, sharing resources, connecting to other contacts, etc.
