Cecilia is no stranger to campus as she graduated from the Broad College of Business with a BA in Hospitality Business. While she was earning her degree, she worked in MSU's IPF stockroom while completing an internship with Marriott hotels. Upon graduation, she continued working for Marriott and obtained a managerial position with intentions of bringing those skills back to campus. She made that leap when she accepted a position with the Canadian Studies Center. Currently, Cecilia is the Canadian Studies Center’s administrative assistant.
