Adjunct Professor & Online Editor

"The faculty at Marymount largely shaped my experience, and my relationships with my professors are some of my fondest memories. I think the personalized attention I received from faculty significantly contributed to my success. In addition, my degree prepared me well for a job in publishing, and for graduate school."
