tapCountless alumni have found great success after graduating from Christendom College, excelling in any field they pursue. Three of Christendom’s most successful alumni in the fields of public policy and law — John Mavretich (’09), Tyler Lowe (’11), and Lauren Merz (’10) — are returning to campus next Tuesday, November 17, to share with students how to find similar success, at the final  “Life on Tap” of the fall semester. The talks will be held in St. Kilian’s Café from 7:30-9:30 pm, with refreshments provided.

Christendom’s “Life on Tap” series gives students the opportunity to meet and network with successful Christendom alumni every month during the semester. Sponsored by the college’s career and leadership development office, alumni from the fields of business development, architecture, technology, and more have helped students find jobs after graduation, especially in nearby Washington, D.C.

John Mavretich is one of many alumni working in the D.C. area after graduation. Mavretich earned his B.A. in political science and economics in 2009, before earning his J.D. in law from George Mason University. While studying for his J.D., Mavretich worked as an associate with the Charles G. Koch Charitable Foundation, as a law clerk for Drinker Biddle & Reath LLP, and as a communications specialist for the Institute for Energy Research. Upon earning his J.D. in 2014, Mavretich quickly became an associate with Venable LLP, one of the largest downtown law firms in Washington D.C.

2011 philosophy major Tyler Lowe works as the director of online education at the Federalist Society for Law & Public Policy in DC. Before taking her current position, she worked as a research assistant for the Family Research Council, and became an associate for the Charles Koch Institute in 2012, managing multiple project teams that created educational products in line with the Institute’s priorities. While at the Charles Koch Institute, she became the assistant director of the faculty division of the Federalist Society as well, a position she would hold until 2013, when she was promoted to her current position as director of online education.

Lauren Merz earned her B.A. in philosophy in 2010, where she also worked as an executive assistant in the Student Life Office and as a resident assistant. After graduation, she became a development assistant for the Media Research Center, where she later became the intern coordinator as well. In 2013, Merz was promoted to secretary to the board of trustees for the Media Research Center, a position she held until 2014, when she became the development manager for Live Action in Washington, D.C. In 2015, she was promoted to her current position of director of strategic partnerships for Live Action.
