Marie Domenech

Operations Manager

Being an operations manager is exactly what you'd think it's like! I am the colleague at work that everyone wants to know but nobody wants to be. If you want something done, you come to me -- everyone knows that!

As an organizational enthusiast, I keep myself on track and I am able to make my colleagues' lives easier. There aren't many things that can grow a company the way trust and dependability can, and I pride myself on being dedicated to both.My favorite thing to do is to help people -- and that help presents itself in a variety of ways. I want to help people succeed and I will go out of my way to ensure that.

Prior to my current role, I spent 15 years in higher education and have experience in admissions, academic affairs, work-based learning, student life, orientation, and international recruitment and retention.
