Tania Velazquez is the College Director for Career Services at Suffolk County Community College and LKC Region II State Ambassador.
Why did you join the LKC?
I always knew that I wanted to work with individuals on how they could better their circumstances and encouraging them to work towards their goals. I wanted to do so by working with teenagers and realized through internships that my passion was working with college students. I find it rewarding to experience the journey a student may take and how it's different for everyone.

If I was not in higher education I would be a holistic chef. I love food, cooking and studying wellness. Food heals the body. It's my passion on the side but is very time consuming! So for now, I work in higher education!
