EMPA-Public Service Leaders - 2012
How would you describe your experience as a Wagner student?
My experience as a student at Wagner was stimulating, boundary-stretching, and actually kind of fun! I loved learning new things as well as putting names and theories to things I had known all along. I met some wonderful people and felt better prepared to make the change I want to see in the world.
How did you find your first post-Wagner job?
I worked throughout my time at Wagner. A few months after graduation, I became a first-time Executive Director of an organization that I knew well as a former board member. However, without Wagner, I never would have had the confidence to tackle such a challenging yet satisfying "stretch" assignment!
What are the advantages of the Wagner alumni network?
I have a Wagner alumna on my board and my current benefit gala chair is also an alumnus. In my work, I meet Wagner alumni on a regular basis as partners, supporters, and colleagues. The Wagner alumni network has been invaluable in my professional success!
