1. What excites you about the tour guide position?      

 I like meeting and interacting with prospective students and showing them the different parts of the campus.  I like telling them the inside secrets of the campus from a student’s perspective. 

 2. What do you hope to accomplish at the end of the end of the tour?

By the end of the tour I want to let the visitors know all that Daemen has to offer, especially about the small family atmosphere, and how helpful the teachers are. I also want to have all the visitors questions answered.

3. Where do you see yourself after Daemen?

I see myself down south away from the snow, having my own practice as a Nurse Practitioner and working with children, hopefully in neonatal, or oncology.

4. Countries I have visited:

Canada, France, Austria, Switzerland, Ireland, Italy

"I think one of the most crucial aspects of the Daemen curriculum is the required internship. I was an accounting intern for both a private health care company and a certified public accounting firm. I was able to apply lessons learned in the classroom to real business situations. When my internships were over, each company offered me a full-time position."
