I majored in International Studies with various minors including Philosophy, Theology, Sociology, and Anthropology.

I participated in the band and marching band program for all four years as a percussionist.

What are you most looking forward to in your internship this spring?
I chose the advancement department because I believe it is the backbone of every nonprofit. If there is no money coming in, then there is no organization. I would like to learn as much as I can about how this department runs before switching to another department in order to have a full appreciation of where the funds are coming from.

What is an interesting fact about you?
I have been to five of the seven continents, most of which I was traveling to volunteer or lead service groups on construction projects.

Who are your top three favorite artists? This could be any genre of music.
Dave Matthews Band
The Beatles
Unknown Mortal Orchestra
