Kayla

Program of Study: Facilities Management

Kayla

Kayla Rose Davie, who grew up in Bennington, NH and graduated from ConVal Regional High School, graduated from MCC in May 2018 with an Associate degree in Facilities Management.

She was the first woman to graduate from the Facilities Management program, and like many other MCC students, Kayla worked full-time while going to college. Graduating in two years at age 19, Kayla immediately landed a job as an Account Coordinator at Amoskeag Maintenance Services LLC, a property management company in Bow, NH.

“My education helped tremendously with this job – I am right on the career path that I want to be on, doing what I love,” Kayla says. Adding, “the hands-on courses I took at MCC, like Heating Systems and Electrical Fundamentals are a huge help as I manage projects, provide estimates and work orders and dispatch techs for multi-state clients with hundreds of locations.”

The Facilities Management degree is part of the Business department, so Kayla also took business and communications courses, among many others, which she says prepared her for professional time management and the many paperwork requirements of her position.

“If I could do it all over again, I would, and I would not change a thing related to how MCC set my degree up.”

Kayla was also involved in extracurricular activities at MCC, and participated in the “Give Kids The World” service trip to Florida. While she had volunteered in her community with her family for years, this semester break program was her first volunteer trip and she learned about fundraising and had the opportunity to work directly with critically ill children.

“I ran one of the rides at the village and it included seats for children with wheel chairs; it made me so happy to see how thrilled the kids were to have a special ride just for them.”

Between the career preparation and the student life activities offered at MCC, Kayla says she always recommends MCC whenever anyone asks her about college.

“My experience at MCC was amazing and if I ever chose to major in something else, I would go back in a heartbeat. I enjoyed how small the classes are, the diversity in age, and the fact that the professors care.”
