Heroux often tells her prospective students about the University's greatest perks. "Not only do you get all that Salve Regina has to offer, but you also have one of New England's coolest cities at your fingertips," she says. Heroux first joined the Salve Regina community as the women's cross country coach, but when an opportunity to join the admissions staff presented
itself, she couldn't pass it up.
Working at a place like Salve Regina makes you feel truly blessed," Heroux says. "When I pass the beach on my drive in and then see the students milling around campus, I feel such a great energy."
Motivated by her own positive college experience, Heroux's mission is to help students achieve the same result. "The highlight of this job is when a student steps on campus and says, 'yeah, this feels right,'" she says. Heroux warns, however, that students should make more than one trip to their top choice schools. "You're making a decision that affects four years of your life," she says. "You can afford to spend at least two days selecting it."
Outside of work, Heroux enjoys spending time with her family, playing beach volleyball, running, swimming, biking the Ocean Drive and tackling weekend warrior projects on her home.
