Cela Veitch-Beck chose to attend Mercyhurst so that she could earn both an undergraduate and graduate degree in five years through MU's unique 4+1 program. As a student, she completed internships as a media coordinator at marketing firm Engel O'Neill, a senior analyst for the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency, and a cyber risk analyst for software company CityGrows. She was also employed as a Tier One Level Analyst through the on-campus branch of Cleveland-based cyber security company MCPc.
