Studied English at the University at Buffalo prior to starting a career in management at Wegmans Food Markets. In my 20 years with the company, I had the opportunity to live in New Jersey and Virginia, where I was able to grow my career, eventually becoming a Front End Manager, overseeing 150+ employees and occasionally running the store. Working with others and helping them to achieve their goals has always been a passion of mine. My favorite responsibility at Wegmans was teaching others what I knew in order to help them get promoted. This passion aligns with me becoming a College Coach for My College Max because it allows me to continue to help people achieve their goals while also letting me spend time at home raising my two young children. https://https://taniarmolnar.mycollegemax.com/
