"Point Park's dance program is ranked one of the 10 best in the country. There are so many successful alumni and I knew I would get a great education and experience overall."
Why did you choose Point Park University?
What does dance mean to you?
Dance allows me to create in ways I never thought possible. It allows you to connect to your environment and surroundings no matter where you are. Dance to me is freedom of expression, and I am so grateful to be able to practice my craft here at Point Park.
You recently served as the secretary of the Student Human Resource Association. Tell us about your experience.
In SHRA, we try to bring awareness about the human resources world to students, as well as establish connections with employers. We host a panel discussion every semester and do a lot of fundraising. Our membership with the Pittsburgh Human Resource Association allows us to attend conferences, job shadow and network. We also have an HR partner program in which an HR employee mentors us. It’s a really great program for any student.
What is your favorite thing about being a Point Park tour guide?
I really enjoy meeting people and connecting with new students because in a way, we sort of help them decide part of their future. I love the energy that develops between prospective students and their families as I take them on a tour. I also just love telling people about Point Park!
What’s your favorite Point Park memory?
I was given the opportunity to travel to Walt Disney World with my classmates to participate in an HR seminar during my sophmore year. We spent five days in the parks learning about HR functions and laws. A big thank you to Patrick Mulvihill and Sandy Mervosh for that trip!
What advice do you have for incoming students?
I would tell incoming students that having a good balance between work and play is really important. Find time for yourself to mentally de-stress while enjoying your time here and everything will be okay.
