SBS Alumni Reunite on Panel at Bloomfield College

On Tuesday, December 4, three Bloomfield College alumni returned to their alma mater to participate in the Social and Behavioral Sciences panel.

The lively panelists included Sally Ann Goncalves '14, a Chemical Dependency Clinician at High Focus Centers in Parsippany and an adjunct professor at the College; La’Shae Lopez-Duverneau '15, CP, a Victim Witness Advocate for the city of Newark who will soon be applying to law school; and Rebecca C. Guzman '16, LSW, who works in Fresenius Kidney Care, a dialysis clinic. Guzman’s mother attended Bloomfield College and her younger sibling will soon be applying.

Latia S. Wapples '20 acted as student moderator, and seamlessly fielded questions to each of the panelists.

The discussion focused on many topics including the importance of internships while an undergraduate student (Lopez-Duverneau landed her full time job after interning for Newark); how best to prepare for graduate school; the benefits of career services on campus; work/life balance (Goncalves enrolled at Bloomfield College as an adult looking to make a career change and quickly learned how to manage her family life and children, and a full course load); and then the floor was opened to questions. A reception followed.

This event was part of the College’s 150th Anniversary celebration.
