    Choosing What is Right Over What is Easy

    Of all the advice Suzanne D’Amore ’21 received during her time at Le Moyne, the best was this: Do what is right, not what is easy. D’Amore took those words to heart. Over the course of her time at the College, she earned a degree in economics with minors in entrepreneurship and applied statistics while simultaneously working in the restaurant industry – rigorous by any standards. Yet D’Amore wanted to do even more. A native of New Hartford, N.Y., she was drawn to Le Moyne because of “the promise of a Jesuit education.” That included the opportunity to immerse herself in disciplines outside of her field of study, such as ethics and philosophy. D’Amore says that is what allowed her to grow as an individual, to become an even more effective problem solver, and to gain a deeper understanding of social justice and how it can be applied in the world of business. Today she is pursuing a Master of Management in Hospitality at Cornell University. Her aim is to use her experiences and education to transition into working for luxury hotels, specifically in the areas of marketing, development and innovation. Her ultimate goal is to own a boutique hotel that focuses on one of most pressing issues facing humanity today: sustainability.
