Buttitta Recognized by “Beyond Sight Magazine”

Mariagrazia Buttitta, a career coach in the office of career development, was recently featured on the cover of the March 2022 issue of “Beyond Sight Magazine.” Buttitta, who is legally blind, is a native Sicilian-Italian speaker, nationally certified counselor, motivational speaker, career coach, wellness and health enthusiast, and mental health and disability advocate. She is also the author of “Now I See: How I Battled Blindness, Mental Illness, an Espresso Habit and Lived to Tell the Tale.”

In her “Beyond Sight Magazine” profile, Buttitta says, “As a recent full-time hire at Monmouth University, I will have an opportunity as a career coach to help students build confidence in their future aspirations. I aspire to serve as a role model and demonstrate how our differences and challenges don’t have to limit our futures. I will encourage them to focus on their strengths and credentials and never let their challenges hold them back.”
