Rochelle Brahalla (MPA-PNP 2022)

Senior Transportation Planner, Equity Manager, WSP

"The tools that I learned at Wagner — like impact evaluation and data analysis — gave me a new language to explain big ideas and to apply that directly to my work ... I got to meet really interesting professors and students, some of whom were on a similar journey as I was, some of whom were a little older and took a large chunk of time between undergraduate and graduate school to really explore, live, and understand exactly what we wanted to focus on in our professions. At that point in my life and career, I also felt that I was able to create more meaningful connections with my professors and fellow students in a way that was different from my undergraduate experience — connections that could move forward. I remember aspiring to be peers with these incredible people, excited to know that I was building a professional cohort while also having mentorship from faculty that helped move me forward in my career and academic interests."
