Meet Our Grads

What do MMC alumni do after graduation? The better question is: What don’t they do?

  • Amanda Webster ’15

    Communication Arts, Concentration in Creative Media

    From the editing studios of Nugent Hall to tea with Dame Emma Thompson, Amanda has had a whirlwind transition to a career in film and television. During her time at MMC, she interned with a producer who later recommended her for her first job on a major film.

  • Ben Chatag ’15

    International Studies and Studio Art

    Ben draws upon deeply personal life experiences to create his colorful and complex contemporary paintings. “I want to visually convey Tibetan philosophical ideas in works that focus on current social, political, and cultural issues,” he says. “The notions of freedom, interdependence, and compassion are important in a time when many are rejecting our connectedness and focusing on differences.”

  • Jordan Elizabeth Gelber ’10

    Graphic Design

    “My college experience transformed me into the person I am today. Marymount Manhattan gave me a voice and allowed me to find my own way. Being a double major and double minor, I was able to fuel my creative needs with practical business needs.”

  • Amber Adams ’11

    Dance

    “Some little girls played with Barbies. I was making dance and films since I can remember. When I was a child, dance and film were playtime for me and they have always been a part of my life.”

  • Zachary Barbati ’10

    Biology

    After graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Biology, received the Copenhagen Master of Excellence Scholarship Award, enabling him to study at the University of Copenhagen from 2010-12, where he spent two years conducting research and pursuing other academic work.

  • Leana Jannetty ’18

    Finance and Entrepreneurship with minors in Accounting, Economics, and Dance

    “After graduating with degrees in Finance and Entrepreneurship with minors in Accounting, Economics, and Dance, I now work on Merrill Lynch’s Northeast Division Office Management Team. Career Services opened this door to me in the fall of my senior year by helping me earn an internship with the company.”
