Anyone who knows Andrea Fasano ’04 will find it fitting that earlier this year she beat out 2,000 fellow applicants to be hired as the first Choice Hotels Ultimate People Person. Vivacious and full of spunk, Fasano was president of her Adelphi senior class and played as a goalkeeper on the women’s soccer team. She has since established herself in Los Angeles as a television producer, host and actor.

As the Choice Hotels Ultimate People Person, Fasano spent about five weeks this summer traveling coast to coast, touring cities, talking to people about their travel, distributing merchandise, tweeting about the brand and staying in all levels of the hotel chain. For Fasano, it was a dream job. “I love to relate and talk to people and find out more about what people are going through and coming from, and I love to travel,” she said.

Since graduating from Adelphi, Fasano has produced reality television programs such as How Do I Look? for the Style Network and Way out West for truTV—an assignment that involved living in Idaho for eight months. (She even learned to rope cattle.) She has also hosted a number of smaller news
and entertainment shows.

Fasano credits Adelphi with giving her a strong start. “Being surrounded by the people that I met and worked with there, they are the basis of who I am now,” said Fasano about the friends she made on campus. “Adelphi allows you to be who you want to be.”
