Bio: My name is Melissa Ferrin and I am from Long Island, New York. I graduated from SUNY Oneonta with a major in psychology. Throughout my time there I was fortunate enough to gain experiences in Admissions, Student Union, New Student Services, Orientation, Student Government, Leadership Programs, and much more. These experiences fueled my passion for Higher Education and Student Affairs.

Since graduating in December, I have been working as an Assistant Supervisor for YAI, a non-profit organization that provides services for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. I enjoy the work I am doing, but I definitely miss working with college students.

Whenever I can get some free time I enjoy traveling, hiking through state parks, cooking, and finding
new shows to binge watch on Netflix. I am excited for the adventures to come atUConn!
