Director of Graduate Academic Advising and Engagement, Bentley University

Since graduating from George Mason University with my BA in 2009 and MA in Sociology in 2008, I have worked in higher education administration. From Admissions, to Student Activities to Advising, I have worked with students at many levels.

Sociology has helped me in my work in many ways. My quantitative and qualitative research classes made me very comfortable with research and therefore I tend to be in charge of assessment in my office. My studies of gender roles and women's issues have positioned me for sitting on several committees ranging from benefits evaluations to sexual assault hearings. Finally, my analytic and writing skills I gained from the Sociology program have been invaluable in policy review and everyday work. When people ask me what I do with my Sociology degree, I never hesitate to answer.
