I was a member of the Deans Student Advisory Council under Dean Bowman serving as a Student Marketing Representative. I was a major mentor at the Busch School. I have also been involved in campus outreach activities. I am a member of the CUA Sales Program. I am also involved with the intramural sports program at Catholic. "
What were some highlights of your time at Catholic University?

A highlight of my time here was when the Women's Swim Team won the Landmark Conference Championship title for the first time in history. I also believe that joining the Sales Program has been a highlight. It set me up and helped me understand what I wanted to do in my future."
What advice do you have for students during their job search?
"Take every interview that you can get. Even if the job is not your first choice, all interviews can be practice for the ones that you really care about. Also, follow up! Follow up with every person that you are reaching out to, or interviewing with. A personal, hand-written letter goes a long way and shows your commitment."
