Abby DePasquale

Abby (Gould) DePasquale joined the Career and Professional Development Center staff in August of 2014 as the Employer Relations Associate and is now the Associate Director of the Center. Abby has her Master of Business Administration and Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from Nichols College. Currently, Abby oversees the Employer Relations aspect of the department and the major event planning such as the Annual Career & Internship Fair. She actively teaches in the Professional Development Seminar (PDS) program and also serves as the Coordinator for 3rd Year PDS.

Prior to joining Nichols College, Abby studied Business Communication and Hospitality Management. Throughout her studies, she interned for the American Red Cross as an Event & Fundraising Intern and helped plan a major fundraising event for the Worcester, MA office. However, Abby truly realized her passion for event management by serving as an Event Management Intern for Willowbend which is a country club on Cape Cod. She oversaw and assisted with the execution of roughly 75 events during a 3 month period and absolutely fell in love with the overall design and execution of a broad spectrum of events. With a passion for student success, event management and employer engagement, Abby truly values the art of networking and building connections for students/alumni.
