Moore School and USC graduate flourishing in Greenville, SC, business analyst position
Moore School alumna Emily Lordo (’18 finance and risk management and insurance; ’20 USC Master of Health Administration) is thriving as a business analyst with Prisma Health Greenville Memorial. Lordo continues to engage with USC and the Moore School as an active alumna.
Lordo will attend the Network with Moore alumni event in Greenville, South Carolina, on Thursday, Nov. 10. A crowd of about 200 will gather to learn updates about the Moore School and network with fellow alumni and Moore School staff.
Read on to see why being involved with Lordo’s alma mater is important to her.
Why do you stay connected and involved with the Moore School? Why is it important?
“The Moore School’s courses and unique programs were a highlight of my college experience and pivotal to my professional development. When interviewing for every job I have had since graduation, I was asked each time about my Moore School study abroad experiences in particular. From study abroad to the ability to foster professor-student relationships that I still often lean on today, the school’s offerings are second-to-none, and many local professionals are more keenly aware of the Moore School’s reputation than many realize. It is critically important for alumni to drive confidence in our graduates that their Moore School education and experiences have prepared them well for ‘the real world.’ I personally am greatly looking forward to mentoring to students through the Moore School’s mentor program that just re-launched after a hiatus during the pandemic.”
What would you say to fellow alumni who have never attended a Moore School networking
“You are missing out! Being a Gamecock unites us, and if you are not capitalizing on that by attending these events, you are forgoing the opportunity to be inspired, gain exposure to new and innovative ideas for how to approach your work, meet excellent candidates for job openings in your company and even hear about new opportunities to advance your own career. Don’t miss another chance!”
How has the Moore School alumni network impacted your career?
“The Moore School alumni events have allowed me to stay better connected with former classmates and meet other alumni, younger and older, who work both within and outside of my current industry. This allows me to keep this network top-of-mind when there are job openings in my department and company that would be a great fit for someone I know who is also an alum. Plus, fellow alumni can keep me in mind for the same reasons! Even more, many of our alumni are local business owners. From a personal perspective, I love seeking those businesses out and supporting their work when and where possible. I am so grateful for the hard work by the Moore School Office of Alumni Engagement to provide these opportunities for continued connectedness!”
Fun fact about Lordo?
“I am lucky to also be able to coach high school girls’ lacrosse after hours!”
Finding love at Carolina?
Lordo married her husband, fellow USC alumnus Ross (’18 UofSC public health and ’22 UofSC School of Medicine Greenville doctor of medicine), in 2020, and the couple was featured in a USC podcast earlier this year about their Gamecock love story. Learn more. »
