Why do you volunteer for the University of Hartford and the Alumni Association? Why do you think it is important to give back to your alma mater?
It's important for me as an alumna to give back because I believe my education from the University of Hartford helped prepare me for my career. Because of that, I want to build upon the alumni network that is already going strong. University of Hartford alumni are everywhere and I believe the Alumni Association is a powerful tool both professionally and personally.
