College Success Arizona is proud to welcome Nicole Santarsiero to the organization, and to her role as office assistant. By the way, Nicole has an MBA and a strong desire to use her education to help nonprofits and social enterprises operate more efficiently.
Nicole explains, “I’m interested in learning how nonprofits work so that I can use my education and experience to help these organizations operate with greater effect and efficiency. Greater efficiency usually results in saving money, which for nonprofits, can mean more resources can be dedicated toward their core mission.”
Nicole grew up Avon, Connecticut, a suburb of Hartford. She went on to earn her Bachelor’s Degree in Spanish and Religious Studies from Stonehill College in Massachusetts. Nicole also holds a Master of Business Administration (MBA), from the University of Massachusetts Boston.
After graduating with her MBA, Nicole worked as a project manager for a successful digital media company in Los Angeles. She left there after a year, and after realizing that her passion resides in cause-related and nonprofit ventures with an educational focus. She now works with College Success Arizona!
