Chances are you’ve already met Paige Napoli Carbone ’02.
Maybe you sat next to her in class sometime between 1998 and 2002. Perhaps you were a part of SGA when she was the group’s president during the 2001-2002 school year. Could be you were one of the students she counseled in 2004 when she worked in the admissions office, or stopped by the D’Ecclesiis Auditorium for one of her performances with the Drama Society. Whatever the case may be, Paige Carbone is back.
As of June 2012, the Long Island Campus’ Office of Alumni Relations welcomed Ms. Carbone back to St. Joseph’s as its new director of alumni relations, a role previously held by Matthew Colson ’02.
If you’ve ever spoken with Ms. Carbone (and you probably have), it’s easy to tell that this is a dream job for the speech communications degree graduate.
“I’ve always wanted to be in a position where I could communicate with our graduates,” Ms. Carbone said. “I’m thrilled to be helping alumni and building the events that are bringing them back to the College. As a graduate myself, I know the value of a strong relationship with your alma mater, and how beneficial it could be.”
Turned “Carbone” after she married her Brentwood West Middle School sweetheart in 2006, Paige (née Napoli) has been a constant advocate of St. Joseph’s, never straying too far from her roots. Now a resident of Blue Point, she brings a buoyant spirit to SJC’s already charming alumni relations team, helping network with alumni and strengthen the link between the College and its family of former students.
“St. Joseph’s has always been home to me. I’ve learned a lot in the three years since I’ve worked here last, and I’m excited to rejoin the SJC family,” she said.
Most recently a career development associate at Stony Brook University, Ms. Carbone counseled and coached students interested in careers in the business industry, and assisted the College of Business faculty in conducting career panels and events. In addition to her B.A. in speech communications from SJC, Ms. Carbone earned an M.S. in school counseling from Long Island University and is a certified life/career coach. A Bay Shore native, she enjoys writing, dancing, the beach and being a proud mother to her 1-year-old daughter, Molly.
