Born in the Bronx to Puerto Rican parents, Miguel was exposed to public service at a young age. While most children attended camps during the summer, Miguel watched his father engage and mentor hundreds of high school students from the NYC public schools. It was this personal experience that Miguel knew someday he would give back to the community in a similar fashion.
Upon college graduation, he started his professional career with a local community bank in Fairfield County, Connecticut. Within four years of working as a Customer Service Representative, Miguel has been exposed to various assignments within the bank. He has had the opportunity to participate with the Executive Management Team on the development of new and enhanced banking products and services. His outstanding performance on special projects and exposure to management has led to his current position as Service Operations Manager.
While at Quinnipiac University, he volunteered countless hours with the Special Olympics of Connecticut. He worked closely with the Director of Sports Development to establish and implement strategies that would increase undergraduate volunteering at the University. In his senior year, Miguel led the STAR program and worked with his peers in providing technology support to faculty and students at all campus facilities.
Miguel graduated with his Bachelor of Arts degree from Quinnipiac with a double major in History and Political Science. He received her Master’s of Public Administration from Baruch College.
