Rianna began her college career at River Valley Community College (then NHCTC) in the summer of 2005. She had been employed at Landmark College as the Events Coordinator; organizing graduations, parents’ weekends, and convocations.

Until that time, going to college had never been a goal, but being involved in graduation at Landmark made her realize she wanted to go to college and graduate. Rianna enrolled part-time at RVCC, and graduated with her Human Services Associates Degree in 2009.

She taught Head Start for two years and then decided to come back to RVCC to earn her Medical Administrative Assistant Certificate, which she did in 2013. Her time as a student built a strong affinity for RVCC, resulting in her applying for and being hired as a secretary at the One Stop reception location.

From there, she was promoted to the Student Success Center. As a former work-study student in the Learning Center, it was an easy transition, and she has continued to work in the Student Success Center for almost two years. She absolutely loves it. River Valley has been a part of Rianna’s life for 11 years, and is where she hopes to retire from someday!
