Sandra McKenna '13

As a recent graduate of Canisius with a MS in College Student Personnel Administration, Sandy can relate to the adult learner as well as appreciate the value of a professional degree that is designed to further career and academic opportunities.  Sandy started her career with Canisius in 2006, and became an integral part of the development of the Office of Professional Studies, which was established in 2009.  The master's programs offered in Professional Studies are academically innovative programs, that offer creative scheduling formats and education delivery methods designed to meet the needs of working professionals.  Sandy assists students through the application process, provides student advising, application review, and curriculum assessment in conjunction with individual program directors.

Fun Fact:  Sandy won a meatball cooking contest at an Italian holiday theme party, and can still do back-flips on the trampoline, and her love of fashion keeps her tied to the retail scene at a local women's apparel store.
