Why did you decide to attend Suffolk?

Coming from a small town in Connecticut, when I graduated high school, I knew I wanted to be in Boston 100 percent. When I found Suffolk, it had everything I was looking for at an affordable price. So I kind of just went with that."

How did Suffolk help you decide on a career path?

"Being in Boston, in the heart of the city, and having access to all these different industries through career fairs and things, really opened my eyes to what was out there. Originally I wanted to go into politics, but this job presented itself to me during the summer. I liked the company and liked the people."

What are your goals for the future?

"I like the company I’m at, but we’re a global company and I’d like to do a little bit more international work, maybe travel or work abroad. We have lots of offices overseas."

Is your office in any way like the show "The Office"?

"Yes, actually. Our manager can be like Michael Scott — but in a good way! — in that he likes us to have fun and likes to use distractions to blow off steam. Then it’s back to work."

How do you unwind after a long day at work?

"I go to a boxing gym in Dorchester, usually the 6:30 class. That’s a great way to unwind."
