Marissa Figueroa '19
Athletic Training, M.S.

I have wanted to be a pilot since I was 14 years old. At CBU, it was like a family all four years throughout the program. After college, I worked to get the experience needed for the airlines and eventually gained my current role as a first officer with SkyWest.

I feel very blessed that the thing that I love to do most in life also happens to be the thing that I am best at and am fortunate enough to make my living doing.

I dreamt of becoming an athletic trainer in the NFL. In 2021, I secured a seasonal internship with the Buffalo Bills as an athletic trainer. This led to the life-changing moment of becoming an athletic trainer with the organization this year.
