Senior Jess Barley (right) has been accepted in the applied gerontology Master's program at Towson University beginning in May. Jess' interest in the field began with a BizComm internship in marketing at Brightview Senior Living in Bel Air, Maryland, where, among other tasks, she was given an opportunity to organize activities for the residents, and found she had a calling working directly with the seniors living there.

This chance changed her career path entirely. Jess is excited about the opportunity to learn more about aging, engagement, and senior living in the two-year degree program. Congratulations, Jess, for seeing that career architecture really can help you build for your future!
