Wesley Brown ('13)
My first job out of college was at the National Archives Foundation, a job I would absolutely never have gotten without the deep background I gained as a History major at Villanova. Working in and giving tours of the National Archives building in Washington, DC was an honor, and it was made possible by the dedicated work of the Villanova history department.
The history courses I took at Villanova played a key role in shaping my political thinking, which informs my day-to-day work in my current job at Patriotic Millionaires, a progressive political group representing high net-worth individuals who want the government to create a more equitable tax system. As Senior Associate, my work in fundraising and recruitment is immeasurably deepened by my understanding of the historical antecedents and long-term political trends that I gained during my time at Villanova.
