Felicia DiCianni enjoyed earning an Associates degree at Brown Mackie College — Merrillville so much that she returned to earn a Bachelor degree. “I was told by a friend that it’s a great school and it is,” she says. “I enjoyed my instructors. They were all wonderful and made learning fun. Every single thing they taught me helps in the real world.”

After graduating from Brown Mackie College — Merrillville a second time in 2013, Felicia was the proud bearer of an Associate of Science degree in Paralegal Studies and a Bachelor of Science degree in Legal Studies. She is happily employed as a paralegal at Hardt, Stern & Kayne, PC in Deerfield, Illinois.

“I assist the attorneys with their cases and businesses. I enjoy the feeling of helping clients and gaining varied experience in different areas of law, although the majority of my work is corporate law. It’s all interesting and I take pleasure in everything I do,” says Felicia.

She found herself looking forward to classes and focusing on her class studies. “It is extremely important to attend every class because you miss a great deal of important information when you do,” she says. “The instructors are there to help you improve your life. Let them.”

Felicia enjoys her career as a paralegal and flirts with the idea of attending law school in the future. “You only live once, so you might as well surprise yourself, give yourself a good challenge, and make the best of it!” she says.
