Academic Background

I graduated from Fordham University, in Bronx, NY, with a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration and a Concentration in Entrepreneurship. I was awarded the Entrepreneur Medal, as the student with the highest GPA within the concentration. After graduation, I worked in a small office until I was laid off two years later. At that time, I attended culinary school at the Notter School of Pastry Arts, in Orlando, FL, intending to combine my business degree and my pastry certificate to open a bakery. Upon graduation, I returned to NY and opened a gourmet internet bakery, successfully utilizing my education up to that point. Throughout that time, I was also working full-time in offices to make ends meet.

Much of my work experience since graduating from Fordham has been in support roles - either to the public, to high-ranking company officers, or to both. After leaving a dangerous position in 2012, I sort of fell into a position at the Reed Memorial Library, in Carmel, NY. I accepted the position, quite frankly, because I needed a job and I love books and reading. At risk of sounding trite, taking that job changed my life. While I have since left that position due to a need for full-time employment, I am currently enrolled in the online MLS program at the University of Buffalo and am eager to get back to working in a library!

My goals in this program are two-fold. First and foremost, I want to learn as much as I can that will benefit me as a librarian. Secondly, I want to attain my Masters, so that I will be eligible for more senior positions within public libraries throughout the state of New York.
