In addition to being a partner in Varischetti Holdings, Varischetti is an attorney at the law firm of Burns White, a director of Guardian Elder Care Holdings and a member of Pittsburgh's Intergovernmental Cooperation Authority, a financial oversight agency.

Quote: “My father said, ‘Dream big, work hard, have fun.' I believe that La Roche provides students with an opportunity and platform where they are able to dream big, work hard and have fun.”
