Sarina Winston-Mack is a first generation graduate from UCF, returning ‘home’ to assist graduate students from prospect through graduation. She received her Criminology AA and Hospitality Management AA from Valencia, and then went on to receive her a bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice with a Minor in Psychology from UCF. After graduating, she applied to the University of Phoenix to receive her master’s in Business Administration.

She loves assisting current students as the new Graduate Student Services Coordinator.

“This is why I am here for the graduate students at NSCM: I am just simply passing the torch to the next person,” said Winston-Mack. “I know firsthand the sacrifice and hardships that may come along during the school term. So, I relate with the grad students. I’ve been in their shoes. I have a saying that what you invest in yourself is what you get out. You must be your own biggest fan and loudest cheerleader! Education doesn’t guarantee you a higher paying job, but it does open more doors of opportunities.”
