The Multifaceted Founder
Morgan Shanske ’21 doesn’t wait for opportunity—she goes out and gets it by launching a new business: Get Morganized LLC. She’s also an aspiring attorney working for a nonprofit and volunteering at the Brooklyn District Attorney’s Office. Keep up!
Morgan Shanske ’21 is taking advantage of every opportunity available to her, and she isn’t slowing down. As a political science major and aspiring attorney, she’s worked hard in several capacities here at Pace—and not just in her studies. Morgan has worked for Lubin’s marketing team, the Legal and Tax department, Pace’s legal council, and even peer leader for Pace President Marvin Krislov’s UNV101 class. Talk about incredible ambition!
When it came to choosing a college, though, it was a unique experience during Accepted Students Day that really sealed the deal for her. She got the chance to sit in on a criminology class with Professor Humphrey Crookendale, and suddenly, the whole game changed. “The class was so interactive and after that experience it motivated me to take more criminal justice classes outside of my political science major,” Morgan said.
Currently, she’s volunteering her time and skills to the Brooklyn District Attorney’s Re-Entry Bureau writing resumes for people who were incarcerated to help them re-enter the workforce. “I conducted research my junior year at Pace for [Professor Kiku Huckle’s] class, where I found that formerly incarcerated people have a significantly harder time landing a job with stable wage growth,” Morgan explained. “My services have provided that opportunity for people and I look forward to expanding my business to be contracted by state-wide organizations moving forward.”
That business—Get Morganized LLC—was recently launched by Morgan during quarantine, and she’s excited to see it expand. “I provide professional development for people including writing resumes, which I learned from Helene Cruz and others [at] Pace’s Career Services office,” she explained. Morgan also conducts mock interviews and utilizes her administrative skills in order to organize offices and electronic records for organizations. “Pace has truly shaped me into the professional that I am today,” she told us.
And that’s not all. Morgan is also working for a nonprofit, the 67th Precinct Clergy Council (otherwise known as “The GodSquad”), which works to end gun violence in central Brooklyn. “I absolutely love this work and feel more invigorated to pursue law school now,” Morgan enthused, having recently spoke about her unique career experiences during a virtual Pace Open House event alongside Professor Amy Freedman.
With so many incredible opportunities, Morgan had a few words of wisdom for the incoming class of first-year Pace students. “Remember that you are investing in yourself and dedicating not just money but time into your education and future. Take advantage of all the individualized resources that Pace has to offer in order to truly get that return on your investment.” She added that she signed up for intramural basketball right before COVID-19 hit, and wishes she’d joined the team sooner.
We’re immensely proud of all Morgan has accomplished, and we can’t wait to see where her career takes her. Congratulations on your impending graduation!
