Zoey Spengler

I had the privilege of moving to Boston in 2018 for a career at a global consulting firm. Throughout my time there, I held several roles, including areas such as change management, HR, and digital communications. My love for adult education allowed me to stay connected to my alma mater by helping run student career preparation webinars; I also used our connections to various corporate partners to have them present to current students. I am currently a Change Manager within Corporate Finance at MassMutual.

Throughout my personal and professional development, building and maintaining relationships has been a cornerstone belief. Whether it was through working with youth programs through the YMCA, to being a lead graduate research assistant, being around others is where I thrive.
