Author: The Crusader Jessica Palermo
Hi, my name is Jessica Palermo, and I started at Belmont Abbey as a Coordinator of Career Services in December 2022. I graduated from Western Carolina University with a BS in Psychology and a BS in Criminal Justice & Criminology. After college, my path was still unclear, but I knew I was meant to work in a position that allowed me to help others. It was that passion that quickly led me into the “education world.” It wasn’t long before I completed North Carolina’s Lateral Entry Teaching Program and taught 4th grade in Gaston County, later moving into a position as the Afterschool/Summer Program Director at Gaston Day School. I have enjoyed helping Belmont Abbey students and alumni navigate their career journeys over the past few months and look forward to supporting many others!
