Elizabeth’s Path

“It’s funny, because we’re often on calls, and we realize at some point that every single person on the call is a Northeastern person, either across MassDOT or the T. Northeastern casts a wide net. You have a built-in network because you went to Northeastern. It’s your students, your co-workers, [and] also your professors and other colleagues that you’ve worked with.”
