Career Day


Career Day 2022
March 11th from 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Contact MaryAnne Kelly at if you have any questions.

Without a doubt, St. Francis cultivates successful, impactful and capable alumnae – women who are changing their world.  

Who better to inspire Troubies than their Troubie sisters who are already working in myriad careers?! We are so excited to host this event in a virtual space this year. Students are sure to gain some insights, have some questions answered and begin building their Troubie network for college and career success!

Alumnae are encouraged to participate. Current students will attend sessions of their choice based on career interest/exploration. Ideally, each session will have a couple of alums who work in a similar career field. The sessions will last 35 minutes with each alum taking 10-15 minutes to summarize their career and leaving time for student questions at the end.

Aerospace, Aviation & Defense

Emily Pierucci ‘06
Pilot / First Officer, American Airlines

My senior year at St.Francis I started working on my private pilot’s license and I knew I found my dream career. After college I flew as a flight instructor, then aerial survey, and tours over the Grand Canyon. I have flown passengers and cargo, and am so happy to finally be settled at American Airlines. I fly the Airbus 320 out of LAX. Aviation holds so many opportunities and I hope to introduce you to some of them!


Rosea Pagliaroli ‘99
Regional Technician Director, VCA Animal Hospitals

I graduated from Western Career College, now Carrington College, in 2001 and received my RVT licensing very shortly after that. I started working at a veterinary hospital in Sacramento and held multiple positions including Assistant Director of PetNursing until 2010. I then moved to VCA and was promoted to Technician Supervisor in 2014. I later began working with the VCA Career Development Team in 2019 working to train Technicians and assistants and sharing skills and knowledge with other VCA hospitals in the Sacramento area. I have since been promoted to Regional Technician Director.
