What were you doing 5 years out of college?

Newly married to my fellow alum Ken Harrington (2008), a new home owner, and moved into a new career in the health insurance industry. There was a lot of changes for me five years out of college.

What were you doing 10 years out of college?

That brings us to this year, and our upcoming reunion! I am now the mom to two lovely boys, Patrick (3) and Connor (10 months). Ken and I are hoping that at least one of the boys will be a future Wildcat. I’m working full time still in the health insurance field.

Did you have an international experience (study, research, internship or volunteer abroad) while at UNH?

I studied abroad in London, England the Fall of 2007, my Senior year.

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

I cannot imagine what my life would be like without UNH. I wouldn’t have met my husband and had our two little guys. Professionally I learned so much at UNH, especially the value of networking. I worked at the Phonathon for all four years, and talked to numerous Alumni. I gained so much wisdom from the advice I was given during those phone calls.
