I’m conducting a research study on rescue medications in pediatric epilepsy in conjunction with a research fellow. Each day I go to the hospital and enroll patients into this clinical trial. I also have the opportunity to shadow world-class neurologists at the clinic and in the ICU.

"My education and experiences at Assumption College soundly prepared me for a career at Google. My time at Assumption and my Catholic upbringing helped me develop strong ethics and morals, which are an important part of my thinking and decision making. I am proud that my teammates at Google recently highlighted "integrity" as my strongest leadership attribute."

Internship: Special Education Intern at Nelson Place School; Position: Elementary School Teacher in Dallas Uplift School District, Grad School: Master's in Special Education

During my internship, I learned the importance of providing a student with disabilities an appropriate Individual Education Plan (IEP). Working with the Behavior Adjustment Counselor and the classroom teacher, I created a mock case study to evaluate the monthly progress of each student. Seeing the improvements that each student made was amazing, but the most rewarding part was seeing the joy that the students got from learning.

Chelsea Gamboa

Internship: Legal Intern at Agwara and Associates; Position: Paralegal at Marquis, Aurbach, Coffing Attorneys

Since I was a child, I was always interested in being an attorney. With the help of the Political Science department, the liberal arts curriculum and my involvement on campus, I was able to find my passion in Constitutional Studies.

My Assumption experience has enabled me to develop my skills and apply them in areas where they are needed within the community. I’ve gained a breadth of experience and knowledge and look forward to translating it into successful opportunities in the future.

Mercedes Mellekas
Human Services and Rehabilitation Studies '16
Internship: Intern at Flagg Street School; Position: Level 2 Teacher at New England Center for Children

At Flagg Street Elementary School I used different behavioral tools to collect, interpret, and present data of at risk students with behavior deficits. I also created and organized functional behavior charts and graphs within a classroom setting. I also helped implement a program that builds social skills called "Brain Wise".

Jocelyn Medas

Internship: Behavioral Therapist Intern at Center of Applied Behavior Instruction; Position: Behavioral Therapist at Center of Applied Behavior Instruction

I worked on a team comprised of other behavior therapists and special education instructors to help students on the autism spectrum and other related disorders perform to the best of their ability in a school setting. I learned how to implement a behavior plan and run discrete trails.

Alison McGrail
Human Services and Rehabilitation Studies '16
Internship: Counseling Intern at St. Peter Marian High School; Position: Family Service Provider and Therapeutic Mentor at South Bay Medical Center

My human services degree has given me such a broad base of knowledge, and current theories that really prepared me for my internship as a school counselor. Through observation and the support of my supervisor I was able to undertake my own case load of students. The ability to complete a 400 hour internship helped me stand out when applying for jobs.

Sarah Massiwer
Accounting '16
Internship: Staff Auditor at Aronson, Aronson and Finning CPAs; Position: Staff Accountant at Aronson, Aronson and Finning CPAs

During my internship I learned about the public accounting field and was exposed to many different industries. I also learned the accounting rules that apply to these industries in order to successfully audit them.

Brenden Knight
Psychology '16
Internship: Teacher’s Assistant at Nelson Place School; Grad School: Master’s in Clinical Counseling Psychology at Assumption College

Through my internship at Nelson Place School, learned the importance of applying textbook knowledge to the working field. Transforming into an effective, compassionate, and critically thinking professional requires immersing oneself into the field. I have also learned that any field that involves working with other individuals leads to reciprocal growth and learning between the "teacher" and the "student," no matter the age difference.
