Pulse Staff



Hey there! My name is Genevieve Manna, a senior here at SHU, and I’m the Producer for The Pulse. Being a Media Studies major, my interests revolve around production, editing, journalism, photography and just about anything in our ever growing media world. I have a major passion for music and am always looking for a good tune. When I graduate, I hope to have a future in something that allows me to combine my passions and creativity. The Pulse is a growing organization on campus so make sure to stay tuned!

Hey everyone! My name is Therese O’Shea and I am a junior here at SHU. I’m a media studies major, but my focus is in broadcast journalism, and I have high hopes to eventually work in the television-broadcasting field. Besides being a line-producer for The Pulse, I work as the Arts & Entertainment editor for Spectrum Newspaper, a staff reporter for the Pioneer Magazine, and I’m also the Spirit and Morale Chair in my sorority, Zeta Tau Alpha. I’m extremely enthusiastic about getting the news out to Sacred Heart, because The Pulse truly is the heartbeat of our campus community!


Hello! My name is Mike Ohrenberger and I’m from Pembroke, Massachusetts. I’m a major fan of golf, movies, the Patriots, the Celtics, and every once in a while, a long walk on the beach. My duty of being a line producer for The Pulse is the greatest honor one could possibly achieve. Tune in SHU!

Staff reporter, Tom Herles has been working for The Pulse since 2009. He is a senior at Sacred Heart and also participates as a staff writer for “The Spectrum", a DJ for WHRT and a RA on campus.
