Amy shares how her experience at HRVI was a part of her career path since Marist:

"Dr. Johnson, who I still refer to as 'Colonel', served as one of my references to graduate school and as a professional reference several times. I doubt he realized how much of my career was shaped by my time at HRVI or his influence. After I graduated, I planned to go into something related to history and considered graduate school. Life took me into another direction, and I ended up earning an MBA and pursuing a career in business with a brief stopover working for the National Purple Heart Hall of Honor. As an intern, I had been part of HRVI’s West Point Bicentennial celebrations at the United States Military Academy in 2002. I immediately fell in love with the history and traditions of West Point. When I saw a job opening come up with their alumni association in 2013, I applied for it. I am now the Director of Alumni Services and I use my background in history and business daily. I never would have looked there if I hadn’t had such a great experience as an intern for HRVI."
