My role with ASC: Academic Coach


What do you want to do after college?

My dream and goal in life is to have an administrative role within the healthcare industry. I worked in a senior living community for two years and fell in love with the atmosphere and being able to give back to those who need it. While I don't know exactly which type of role would be the best fit for me yet, I do know that I would love to either be in a senior living community or a hospital. I can help and give back to others while pursuing my love for business!

What other campus and professional activities are you involved in? Include any officer/leadership positions you hold.

Right now I am also involved on other parts of our campus. I am currently a Student Success Leader for a College of Business FYE course. I am also currently serving as the secretary of the Gerontology Club. I am also a member of Business Professionals Roundtable and Alpha Phi Omega, a service fraternity on campus.

I love to travel! Obviously not during the COIVD Pandemic, but before this I would take every opportunity to go somewhere new. I think one of my favorite parts about traveling is trying all of the new foods! So far my favorite trips have included Italy, Hawaii, Israel, Alaska and Gatlinburg, Tennessee.
