Meet agent John! He’s from Milford, Connecticut and graduated from Central Connecticut State University in 2015 with a Bachelors of Science Degree in Construction Management. Now, he works for a large stone manufacture in his hometown in the sales department, interior design and installations. He is a die-hard Red Sox fan, has been competing in Spartan Races and other OCRs for 7 years now, and loves going to concerts, especially Classic Rock. When we asked him what his favorite part of being an agent was he said, “I enjoy being somebody that someone else can look up to. One of my proudest moments as an agent was after having a series of phone calls with one of my students, helping him study for his driver's license, right before we ended the call he said "Hey, John, I know you're supposed to be a mentor to me, but I don't really consider you a mentor. You're my friend. Is that cool?" ...and it just felt really good inside to hear that. He went on to pass his driver's exam and I was the first person he told. 🙂” Keep crushin it 💚 #studentsuccessagency #ssacomingthrough #talktomyagentgearupworks

Meet Agent Rubi, who is also our head of Impact here at SSA. Outside of SSA, she loves to dance and workout. She claims to have the most beautiful dog in the world. Her name is Penny Amber. Rubi graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and is now working on getting her Masters in Social Work. Fun facts about Rubi: She is extremely allergic to strawberries and has duper double jointed elbow 🙈🙈 ahh. When we asked her what she enjoyed most about being an agent she said, “I love the ability to make connections with brilliant students across the country. I think it's amazing how I wouldn't meet them without SSA, but being an agent gives me the ability to support them one on one even from the other side of the country” #studentsuccessagency #talktomyagent #gearupworks

Say heyyyyy to agent and Student Success Director, Nisha! Nisha was born and raised in Dallas, TX.

Some of her favorite things in the world are food, traveling, going to concerts, makeup, working out, and spending time with her family and friends!

Meet agent Jimmy! He lives in Fort Worth, TX and is an entrepreneur. He recently opened a single-screen movie theater dedicated to independent and local film! He graduated from TCU in 2015 and then worked for Amazon for three years before starting this new adventure. He says he can be considered a consummate nerd; winning prizes for trivia about Harry Potter and The Office. He’s also ridden 39/48 rides at Disney World in one solid day! We asked him what he loves most about being an agent and he said, “I love getting to connect with students and push them towards their goals. I found quickly that leaving college and working for a big company wasn't the path for me, so it means a lot to get to guide students towards goals and careers that may seem nonorganic to traditional job paths.” We love agent Jimmy and the work he’s doing with his SSA students! #studentsuccessagency #talktomyagent #gearupworks

He is about to finish his third year and only needs one more to graduate. He is originally from a small farming community in rural Missouri where his family farmed cattle.
