Alumni Tale: Jessica DeCristofaro ’09

What did you study at UNH?


What were you doing 1 year out of college?

One year out of college, I took the plunge and relocated to Miami, Florida for an amazing opportunity in the healthcare industry, promoting diagnostic equipment to healthcare providers.

What were you doing 5 years out of college?

Five years out of college, I was fortunate enough to be accepted into the pharmaceutical industry, as a pharmaceutical representative for a leading dermatology company.

What are you doing now?

Currently I am living in beautiful Miami working as a pharmaceutical sales representative for an international pharmaceutical company, Valeant Pharmaceuticals. The company is innovative with a diverse product portfolio. It is safe to say that I have landed my dream job and could not be happier with where I am in my career.

How do you feel your time at UNH has had an impact on where you are today?

UNH afforded me the opportunity to broaden my educational background by allowing me to study abroad in Europe, as well as in the university setting in the small town of Durham. This opportunity gave me the incentive to discover employment opportunities in one of the most diverse areas in the country.

Why do you believe in UNH?

I believe that I received an amazing education with excellent professors who encouraged me to achieve my career goals. I feel that my professors at UNH were well rounded, highly intelligent, wonderful role models, and always available for mentoring. I believe in UNH because without the wonderful professors, I would not be continuously  advancing in my career!
