Metropolitan College of New York alumna helps small businesses


Individuals who wish to launch careers in public service for the federal government may benefit from obtaining higher education, as many jobs in managerial occupations require a four-year college degree, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Some professions require a bachelor's degree or higher in a specific field of study.

Teri Coaxum, who was appointed as a regional advocate by the U.S. Small Business Administration, received her MBA from Metropolitan College of New York. Coaxum is the Office of Advocacy's liaison between small business owners, state and local government agencies, state legislators, trade associations as well as small business organizations. Her assistance coverage, known as Region II, consists of New York, New Jersey, the U.S. Virgin Islands and the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico.

"Her career has focused on helping individuals in their dealings with government, both at the local and federal levels," said Winslow Sargeant, Chief Counsel for Advocacy. "She understands the importance of partnership and listening to those we serve."

Coaxum has also served as the deputy state director for New York Senator Charles Schumer, where she advised the senator on issues such as economic development and job creation.
