I’m the Director of the International Office at Mary Immaculate College. I’ve been in this role since 2013. I’ve had an interesting route to this position. When I graduated, I worked as a dispatcher for the Fire Service here in Limerick with around 70 fire brigades in the region.
I was doing my MA at MIC and started to dream about working there. One night I was looking on the website and spotted a vacancy in the President’s Office but the closing date was the next day. I worked hard on my application and luckily got it in on time because the job I got was fantastic and varied, drafting speeches and coordinating events. I then worked for about two years as the Acting Marketing Manager before moving to the newly-established International Office, which is my favourite role to date.
